Napster cuts prices

A sign that Napster is starting to struggle: it's offering a price cut in the face of falling subscriber numbers. PaidContent reports:

When Napster’s (NSDQ: NAPS) Q308 subscription numbers are released, remember the mid-August sale promotion offering 6 months for $70 instead of the usual $127—a discount of more than 45 percent—complete with 50 downloads of MP3s that can be kept.

While it's great that Napster's offer finally seems to register that people would really much prefer to have something to keep forever in return for their cash, isn't it going to just point out that most of the music you pay for vanishes if you mention that "I'm also gonna give you fifty mp3s all for your very own, forever..."?
