The music has to stay free... it's ABSOLUTELY a valuable music discovery service... and it's only streaming. It's not like fans can download music from myspace and put it on their iPod.

Record labels could monetize Myspace by including buy-links for the songs in the media player. We need to encourage impulse buys from enjoying samples.

Ya, I agree you can't go from making Myspace music free to paid - that's why there's advertising on there. I'm still wondering if audio ads will take off...you know where they will have an ad at the beginning / end of the track so you're forced to hear it. By the way, you CAN download tunes from Myspcae directly onto your computer - ask any teenager - they'll tell you how to do it.

Why can you not search for all artists in a particular city on MySpace? There are so many things that need to be fixed with it before people will pay to use it.
