Limewire tries its hand at legit business

Like Arthur Daley opening a proper shop, Limewire is attempting to clean up its image by opening a properly licensed store selling proper, DRM-free, MP3s.

Going straight! Just like Jeffrey Archer. It warms your heart, doesn't it? The store has half a million songs to choose from - including the new Dolly Parton album - and looks to be charging 99 cents. It's only available to those in the US, though - hey, this is Limewire, remember, they're not the sort of guys to laugh in the face of tightly-worded licensing agreement, are they?

There doesn't seem to be anything much to turn the Limewire store into an iTunes killer, though. It's a basic, no-frills store, only with the same prices everywhere else on the street.
