i like how the fans are winners AND losers; one question: since so many songs are streaming on MySpace for free, will users now pay for them ?

Good question barrym. But free does not mean portable; so time will tell if all this free streaming helps or hurts sales.

What do others think?

The major labelss arriving at myspace is a sure sign that myspace will soon be as relevant as Napster.


Yes imeem has a fight on it's hands, myspace has copied imeem's strategy to fend of the lawsuits from the record labels. imeem vs myspace isn't as one sided as it sounds, imeem is in the heart of Silicon Valley and have been able to develop and adapt their site practically overnite.(anyone remember when imeem was an IM/P2P app built by ex-napster developers?)

Myspace boast 100millions visitors per month, and imeem only claims 20 million. But a visit to quantcast.com shows that 100million people a month see the imeem players on sites around the world, even if they don't realise the music on their friends myspace page.

One thing's for sure, myspace will probably make a lot more effort to ban imeem's music players from their site, again.
