UMG Launches Mobile Music Store In Holland

Universal Music Group has launched a mobile music service in Holland called AnySong which “gives Dutch mobile subscribers access to over 250,000 songs, clips and ringtones”. Revenues from the service will be divided between the mobile operators, the content providers (UMG being the main one, I’m guessing) and the technology partners (search company Targetise and billing provider mobileMoney). It’s not just sale revenue…”In addition, sponsors have already signed advertising contracts for the AnySong store, indicating that ad revenues for the AnySong project will be significant in the future.”
