The Power of One Infographic

Warner has launched its digital music distribution service, offering a feeble 100 songs via third-party e-tailers - rather less than the thousands of tracks insiders had claimed would be made available.

The 'big five' music label announced the service back in September. Tracks will be offered in both Liquid Audio and Windows Media formats, backed by Liquid Audio and Microsoft's rights management applications.

True, both formats may, as Warner said, be available to the majority of computer users, but they're hardly a comprehensive selection.

In keeping with the music industry's desire to avoid annoying its traditional retail partners, Warner's tracks will be offered through online e-tailers and the Web sites of bricks'n'mortar record stores. ®
