Written by Petteri Pyyny (Google+) @ 11 May 2001 15:21

MP3.com announced this week that its artists will be able to sell their CDs also in digital only format -- basically this means that users can purchase all tracks from an album and those files are then stored into users My.MP3.com "locker" that user can then use to listen music from anywhere via the Internet.
Prices of these "netCDs" will be set by artists themselves, ranging from $3.99 to $30. Even that MP3.com claims this is something really radical, it's basically just selling music downloads "sideloaded" to a net-only harddrive -- same stuff what many companies have done for a long time now.
