Friendly Music, an online store that allows users to buy copy-protected songs for use in online videos for $1.99 a piece, has launched.
The fee enables video creators to non-commercial, unlimited views rights in perpetuity. The store is backed by music licensing store RumbleFish and YouTube. Their hope is that they will provide an easy solution to users who would like to add music to their online videos and don't want to worry about infringement. The service could provide another revenue source for indie artists.
