MySpace has joined the online selling of DRM free music having announced it has signed three of the majors (Sony BMG, Universal and Warners) so far.  This is a natural step given that MySpace managed establish itself as a natural place for musicians and groups to establish a web presence (particularly for smaller artists).  However as Read Write Web point out it is surprising that there is no mention of signing agreements with the labels and organisations which probably attract more traffic to MySpace (after all the major artists can and do have their own significant web presence).

It will be interesting to see if MySpace and other social networking sites as they start to sell MP3s make any impression on iTunes currently dominant position. tags: , , , , , ,
