Amazon.com reportedly will jump feet first into the business of selling
downloadable music next year. The online retailer best known for
selling books and CDs may offer a few tracks by year's end, but
will put a strong push behind digital sales in 2000, the general manager
of Amazon's music store, Jennifer Cast, was quoted as saying by Reuters.
Amazon already offers free, promotional songs for download by artists
such as Sarah McLachlan, Creed and Stereolab.
