Microsoft's spokeswoman told yesterday at Comdex to reporters that Microsoft plans to launch an online digital music store in 2004 to compete with existing services, such as Apple's iTunes and Roxio's recently-opened Napster.
Company is also looking for a "senior level marketing candidate" for the new Microsoft Music Download Service, according to their website. Site states that "the first duty of this candidate will be to finalize the business plan for the Microsoft Music Download Service".

It is interesting to see whether Microsoft will attract yet another antitrust lawsuit and integrate the music store within its Windows Media Player..
