Music Industry News - as it happens
Source: p2pnet.net - October 29, 2002

"Play what you want, when you want. Even burn your own CDs."

That's what you see when you visit Listen.com's home page at http://www.listen.com/. And it refers to its re-vamped Rhapsody music service.

Now, says the company, subscribers can burn songs onto CDs. But only some songs. And only if they're from Universal and Warner. And only as long as they're still willing to fork out $10 a month for Listen.com's premium All Access service.

Listen.com doesn't say which songs are available up front. Anyone who wants to know has to download the seven-day 'free' trial, at the least, to find out.

Until this latest offering, the Rhapsody service was limited to audio streaming. No downloads, or anything else.

So does this mean Listen.com has changed its ways?

Nope.

It just means it's trying to get its bread buttered on both sides, as well as providing two of the Fulsome Five record labels with another way to see if it'll be worth their while to fully commit to p2p - as if they have any choice.

Nor is the price of burning a CD included in the $10-a-month fee. Users will have to dig for another $1 per track.

In other words, if they want all the music on a particular album, they might just as well go out and buy it.

Rhapsody won't let them save songs to their hard drives, either. Its software burns a Rhapsody - and Rhapsody only - track or tracks straight onto a single CD in a single session.

Forget about adding anything later.

Or better still, forget about Rhapsody.
