BMG/Universal Music Site

from the yet-another-place-to-buy-overpriced-cds dept

BMG and Universal announced plans to launch a new music site later this year called GetMusic. The site will tie together music related communites and ecommerce. No mention was made of plans for downloadable music.

Music portals seem to be all the rage. There a number under development that are focusing on downloable music. Let’s hope the traditional firms jump on the downloadble bandwagon soon. The last thing we need is another place to buy CDs.

Anyone else notice the logo?

Did anyone else notice the similarity between the GetMusic logo and the logo, from the variable-weight sans-serif font to the orange/yellow catenary (only GetMusic has it above the text)? Looks like an attempt to exploit Amazon brand-recognition memes, whilst maintaining sufficient distance to not be sued. Wonder whether it’ll work.
