But the move does not signal the end for the company, said Music World president Kai Voigt in a telephone interview with CanWest News Service.

There will be a change in direction, said Voigt, one of the new owners, indicating that there will be a shift toward more of an online presence. “That is a component.””

“The tariffs, to be charged to iTunes and other companies that distribute music over the Internet, adds three cents to the cost of individual songs that now sell for about 99 cents, and 1.5 cents per track for downloaded albums.”

“For temporary music sales, such as songs that erase themselves after a pre-determined period, stores will pay 5.7% of the selling price, with a minimum of 54.8 cents per subscriber per month.”

I am not going to cancel my iMesh subscription any time soon but I do have Frostwire installed on my computer.
