Think About This: New Music Business Model From Lala

Lynne Kiesling

I am off to my old stomping grounds for a few days of KP Spouse family reunion, and seeing some of my old colleagues and friends. To plant a seed for discussion upon my return, here’s an event that I’ve been thinking about a lot in the past few days: Lala, which started life as an online used CD trading site, will now be selling online music, and in ways different from iTunes and the other online music sites. Here are some background articles as a placeholder:

Business Week: Lala to send music directly to iPods

WSJ: Listen for free, but pay to carry (subscription required)

NYT: Warner to offer free music through Lala

Lala reshaping the online music industry

Note: compare/contrast Lala’s new business model with Magnatune’s.

See ya next week!
