eMusic reaches 250,000 subscribers Online music download store eMusic has revealed it has reached 250,000 subscribers. The store sells DRM-free MP3 downloads from Independent labels all over the world. It has more than 2 million songs currently on offer, many of which are available with included Digital Rights Management (DRM) copy protection from stores like iTunes. eMusic offers subscription packages that differ somewhat from those offered by Napster and similar.
While Napster will allow a customer to download as many tracks as they want and play them as long as they keep paying their subscription fee, eMusic offers packages that have a limited number of downloads that can be made during the month. Of course, once you stop paying the monthly fee, you don't lose access to your downloads like you do with Napster's service.

In December, eMusic announced that it had sold its millionth download.
