(Via WSJ)For long Amazon has harbored ambitions of offering more "digital content," such as music and movies. It has been selectively posting short films in its site for sometime & recently Amazon also Webcast a concert featuring Bob Dylan and Norah Jones on its site as part of its anniversary celebration. Amazon.com appears to be moving decisively towards offering a digital-music service, joining a crowded field that includes Apple Computer,Napster and RealNetworks among others. Amazon has reportedly held talks with record-label executives in the past two weeks about licensing music, and has apparently discussed a music offering that would include options such as song-by-song downloads and a monthly subscription service. Amazon seems to have discussed tapping MusicNet, a New York distributor of digital music, to support the service, and the indications are that the launch shall happen by the fourth quarter.
