(UPDATED) eMusic is reportedly working on deals with EMI and Universal as part of a plan to relaunch its subscription music service in November. They already have deals with WMG, Sony and many independent labels. Despite the addition of more major labels, the site is not abandoning its subscription model which offers plans like 24 downloads a month for $12. But there will be some other big changes on the new site.
Like Google and others, eMusic would also like to launch an online music locker. "Our users are saying you own it so you should be able to listen to it wherever you are," according to Klein." We're deep in conversations with the labels about licensing for that."
