LimeWire has launched a DRM-free music store within its P2P service, offering up 500,000 indie label MP3s from 27-cents per track.
The service plans to populate its sharing service with links which will allow users to purchase tracks legitimately. The company is also offering online access to the songs it sells, for those who don’t want to install the application.
Songs sold are delivered as 256k MP3s without digital rights management (DRM) technology. Users can pay either 99-cents per track, or opt for a subscription service ($10-$20 per month) which allows them to download up to 75 songs.
