Bertelsmann eCommerce Group announced today that it will license parts of Napster's technology for its upcoming BeMusic online music service, scheduled to launch in beginning of 2002.
BCG doesn't license the peer-2-peer technology, but the secure service and distribution platform that Napster has developed for last year or so. Bertelsmann is a major owner of Napster and has funded Napster's development of its legal service, scheduled to launch this year.
