Well it looks like AllofMp3‘s new marketing department is going at full speed ahead. They have released a free client that will allow you to download songs from their catalog for free.
The catch is that you have to play it in their Music for the Masses player and be connected to the internet. This certainly puts a damper on Napster/Yahoo/etc’s music subscription service.
Anyone want to place bets on how long it will take someone to crack the DRM?
BTW Allo3Mp3 also is reported to of lost Visa as a method of uploading funds to your paid account. I can see why free might be a good option at this point.
