Rhapsody allows CD burning's subscription-based online music service Rhapsody will finally allow users to burn music to CDRs. However, the possibility wont be included in Rhapsody's monthly fees, but consumers have to pay for each burned song separately.
Each song that user wants to burn on CDR, will cost 99 U.S. cents. So, one album will be normally only slightly cheaper bought via Rhapsody than by purchasing "the real thing" from the store.

The move anyway indicates that RIAA and its member companies are realizing that users want to have unrestricted music when they buy their music from online stores. Earlier Pressplay (owned by Sony and Vivendi) and FullAudio have got similiar licenses from record labels to allow consumers to burn limited number of songs to CDRs that they download from these services.
