Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 126.96.36.199
Cash strapped French media giant Vivendi Universal has closed the European arm of MP3.com, the online music site that it bought for £265m two years ago.
and just when people thought things were going well in that industry, wonder how much they can get for the domain name.
my bet is on someone like the owners of Pressplay buying it for type-in traffic.
quite a big blow i guess for a lot of artists
I think I was up to $.53 with my songs posted there. I was hoping to reinvest the money into more lessons ;)
Plus the recording industry is making it even harder for these sites to survive. Sites like MP3 follow the rules and are doomed.
Obviously the exception is mye 2 songs that are brilliant and sometimes average 9 plays per month.
I never used MP3.com, though it was one of those "cornerstones" at the height of its time. When they finally sort the piracy/artist/fat cat karma levels im sure the next MP3.com could be ehre to stay for much longer.
MP3.com Europe regrets to inform you that we will no longer continue to offer localised sites in UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Netherlands. We hope you have enjoyed our service.
