I think its a a poor idea. Free market competition is good for everyone. Why not have itunes who has proven a great force for selling tunes, then open their own site if they want to. I think the more availability the better the product has a chance to be heard and purchased. Competition drives the price to a buyers market. Why should a company control distribution, especially when they are really there to serve the artist, and vice versa? Wasn't that one of the main complaints about the old way, its seemed unless you were on the top 5% you didn't survive. 2 cents.
