eMusic to focus on indies with relaunch

eMusic is set to relaunch their MP3 subscription service to make it easier to find independent artists and their songs. “As in its previous incarnation, the service will offer unprotected MP3 files from independent labels, a sharp contrast from services such as Apple Computer’s iTunes or Microsoft’s new MSN Music store, all of which wrap their songs in copy protection.” And unlike services such as MSN Music Store and Napster, eMusic MP3s can be played on the iPod. Subscription prices are set at varying tiers, 40 songs a month for $10, 65 songs for $15, or 90 songs for $20 a month.
