Listening to free music online is usually associated with illegal pirating operations. MySpace has introduced a new music store that allows users to listen to tracks free, but requires payment to download.

The free listening service is ad-funded and purchased tracks are from Amazon. Backing for the free service is from Sony BMG, Universal, Warner, and EMI. At launch, the MySpace music store only has a few thousand tracks.

MySpace says that number will grow to the millions as partners open archives. "The big question is whether they can change their environment so people will want to do their shopping as well as their gossiping [at MySpace]," said James McQuivey, research analyst at Forrester.
