hypebot: Virgin Shuts US Music Subscription. Napsters Jumps In
Hypebot has more details on the Virgin/Napster deal. Microsoft abandoning PlaysforSure may be the best thing that ever happened to Napster. It is helping to force the hand of the subscription players - basically testing them see how serious they are about competiting in the space. They either need to invest time and resources in coming up with an alternative DRM/device story, or just bailout and sell their subs to those that are willing to (apparently Napster).
Where are the Coral guys in all of this?! They should be swooping in and providing an easy migration plan and ecosystem story to all of these guys....
