Buy.com launches digital music service

Hoping to reprise Apple’s early iTunes success, the company offers a catalog of more than 300,000 songs from major and independent labels–for computers using Windows. [CNET News.com Entertainment & Media]

Looks like an Apple rip-off service right down to the commercials on the bottom of the home page. You need Windows Media Player 9 which manages the rights through SMDI. It’s a combo package with download, transfers and burns. Seems to be more focused on the rights part than necessarily on the music part, but we all know who wants it that way…

Good for Buy, that as usual they win on price… though I wonder how much they paid Tommy Lee?
