Limewire Store beta launches

Limewire Store beta launches It was announced in August 2007, and now finally Limewire has launched a beta for its DRM-free online MP3 download store.
The store offers "a web browser-based interface for downloading music." The store does not use P2P however and is centralized with the company hosting the MP3s on its own servers. You do not need to be a subscriber to purchase the tracks but you will get better deals if you do. Each individual Track costs $0.99 USD but if you purchase the "Platinum Plan" for $20 USD a month then you receive 75 download credits, good for 75 song downloads. At that rate, each track only costs $0.27 USD.

Users running Internet Explorer 6 & 7, Firefox, Safari or Opera browsers can currently use the store but Limewire hopes to integrate the store into the actual client.

"Our plan with the LimeWire Store is to add to the LimeWire experience–we’re not going to take anything away. We think purchase links should appear alongside Gnutella search results, similar to how Google keeps sponsored links separate. We believe a significant number of users will choose to purchase content if the presentation is convenient and unobtrusive, the price is Right, and the product isn’t hindered by DRM," added a Limewire spokesperson.

Lol, "limewire" and "store" are quite an oxymoron when placed that close together. Still, at least they are trying to provide legal tracks.

hehe. almost like it asked you to go pro and you download pro crack and limewire pro with the Limewire Lite.

you get it free from this guy you dont know, or .99 cents from a online store.

all in the same P2P client.
