Lime Wire, popular spyware-free file sharing program, announces its plan to open a DRM-free digital music store.
The music store, which still remains unnamed as of press release, will initially be a stand-alone website, which can be accessed through links on LimeWire’s software. Eventually, they plan to allow users to buy music directly from LimeWire.
Currently, LimeWire has scored deals with Canada-based music label Nettwerk Productions, and Iris Distribution, both companies agreeing to provide LimeWire with MP3 formatted music from their catalogs.
“We are delighted to collaborate with these forward-thinking music companies and sell their authorized content through LimeWire,” said Jesse Rubenfeld, Lime Wire Chief Financial Officer.
