LimeWire opens music store

By on
LimeWire, a company whose name has been synonymous with piracy and P2P since nearly its inception, has opened the beta doors to its all-new and legit music store, which is available to U.S. customers and operates on either a pay-per-track or monthly subscription basis.

The company’s new online music store has about 500,000 tracks from a diverse set of mostly independent or minor label artists for you to choose from. Each individual song costs $0.99 but there’s also a “Platinum Plan” for $20 a month, good for 75 song downloads. While the online music store is currently separate from LimeWire’s P2P service, there may be integration between the two somewhere down the line – though it's unclear how this dichotomy will coexist if the company wants to eventually secure deals with major music labels and grow its store’s music library.
