Madonna, Sean Paul - For $3.99 a Month
Unlimited downloads, transfers and burns with, "No Spoofs, Viruses or Spyware" and "No bogus hidden charges".
That's what Puretunes, a new music download site based in Madrid, Spain, is offering. From $3.99.
But, promises the company, users aren't merely 'renting' downloads. "You own them," it states. "There are no restrictions on the song files. You may use them as you like."
In the meanwhile, what does the 'from' mean?
* 8 hours @ $3.99 (8 solid hours of unlimited access)
* 1 weekend @ $9.99 (48 hours of unlimited access)
* 1 month of unlimited access @ $24.99
* 3 months of unlimited access @ $59.97 ($19.99 a month)

Puretunes says it's fully licensed by the Sociedad General de Autores y Editores (Spanish Association of Authors and Editors) (SGAE) and the Asociacion de Artistas, Interpretes y Ejecutantes (Association of Artists, Performers and Players) (AIE), "thus complying with Spain's Law of Intellectual Property".
Its catalog, "consists of nothing but totally unrestricted high quality MP3 audio files of at least 128 KB," it adds. "All files are virus free and 100% guaranteed."
