pages. Digital downloads are the future of the internet. TVT Records
announced a few weeks ago that they will be giving away 1,500
songs from their database. Emusic.com bought CDuctive, Tunes.com
and Rollingstone.com in a bid to consolidate the digital download
market and be the number one player in the industry.
