Amazon, Internet retail giant, has launched a service where users can download music tracks for free. Most of the tracks are encrypted with Liquid Audio format and their sole purpose is to promote the band's album sales in Amazon.
But interesting point is that Amazon also offers music from indie artists for free and users can tip artists via Amazon's payment system if they want to -- of course Amazon takes a slice, thirty per cent to be exact.
