British charity Oxfam launches online music store One of the Britain's biggest charities, Oxfam, has launched a legal online music store together with British OD2. OD2 is the Britain's largest online music service provider and has partnered with several European portals to create similar joint ventures like the one now created with Oxfam.
The new service, BigNoise.com, will offer downloads ranging from 0.75 to 0.99 (that's appx. $1.34 - $1.77 or 1.12 - 1.48). Out of that, 0.10 (0.15; $0.18) for each song will be donated to the Oxfam charity. The music library of the service contains approximately 300,000 songs including the music catalogs of all five big record labels. The service is due to launch on 26th of May.
