Limewire reveals pricing scheme for new legal store Recently, we reported that the infamous P2P client Limewire was set to start a DRM-free legal music store but the company didnt give any pricing information or a date for launch.
According to Dailytech however, Limewire has finally released all those details including the pricing schemes for both individual tracks and monthly subscriptions.

The service will be launched at the end of November 2007, said the company, and each individual track will cost $.99 USD. Monthly subscriptions however, will be on a tier plan. "The first monthly plan tier will allow 25 songs to be downloaded for $9.99 USD; the second tier allows 50 downloads per month for $14.99, and the third tier allows 75 downloads per month for $19.99."

Limewire also added that video content was not ready but would be available a few months into the service.

Now, do these songs become "yours," or do they expire when you don't pay the bill?

There are plenty of options out there other than Lime Wire. Ask around and do a little research.

hey guys i havent been on in awhile.i was just reading some old news
and came across this one.ive had people tell me they have paid as
much as 36.00$us to download limewire,and they think this covers them
for unlimited downloads of music.limewire needs to do a better job
telling consumers that,the money is for ????? and it doesnt protect
them from file sharing and copyright laws.

You asshole. You stole that from my site and removed the god damned credits. I have since removed it because of pieces of shit like you.
