Oxfam launches music service

Another OD2 reseller comes forward

Yet another online music digital distribution service has been announced - this time from UK charity, Oxfam.

This service (powered by the OD2 network) will launch Wednesday in Europe. OD2 powers multiple services in this territory, with partners including MyCokeMusic and ISP Tiscali.

The UK music market also saw Napster launch here last week. Apple has so far remained tight-lipped regarding its own iTunes Music Store Europe plans.

The Oxfam service will offer tracks at between £0.75 and £0.99 per track, out of which £0.10 will go to fight poverty. The service will launch with 300,000 available songs.

"Music lovers get great tracks, and artists see their music helping some of the poorest people in the world through real cash support," said Adrian Lovett, Oxfam's director of campaigns and communications.
