Lala is unveiling the first and only free fully licensed service to instantly provide anywhere web access to an existing music library such as iTunes. Replacing the outdated approach of uploading MP3 files from a PC, Lala introduces a licensed technology to instantly match songs from consumers’ personal music libraries with the Web-based catalog on Lala.com.
Adding new music to a licensed collection is easier and less expensive than ever. Sample any full song or complete album for free. Add songs to a web collection for only 10 cents, and buy DRM-free MP3 downloads for as low as an additional 79 cents.
All four major labels including EMI Music, Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group have agreements with Lala to stream and sell music. And unlike ad-supported music sites, Lala has garnered support from publishers and over 170,000 independent labels and distributors.

I hope that this service gets the exposure it needs to become successful. It’s a great new refreshing idea that does what most people have wanted to for with their music collections for years.
