Music Store has opened their new BuyMusic store. Similar to the Applie iTunes store, they are offering 300,000 songs about 79 cents each. BuyMusic works with Windows Media player to digitally protect the downloaded file; each song has slightly different restrictions about how the file can be used; most have somewhat flexible terms as far as burning to a CD, transferring to a MP3 player, etc, etc.

The nice part is there is no subscription fee, you just pay for what you download. They have a very good help website setup explaining how it works and what the restrictions are as well as a useful search tool for looking for songs.
