A while ago I blogged about how Microsoft was wrapping up their MSN Music site in favour of its new Zune site (original blog here).  The two online services have been incompatible resulting leaving MSN Downloads effectively locked into their current location and the owners of the music not being able to move their licensed music.  Well according to Digital Music News (article here) there is some good news, Microsoft have had a change of heart at least until 2011.  Microsoft wont be selling any more music through the MSN site, but the necessary authorisation mechanisms needed to allow the downloads from the MSN store to be moved around and copied onto MP3 players will continue to be supported for the next three years.  Not a perfect solution, but a stay of execution for those affected.
