You have to contact the labels. And they wont let you.
Unfortunately thats just the way it is.
^ Why not?
He said a store, not a radio service or something.
Labels will be happy to sell more!
As far as I know, yes, you need to contact each one.
each and everyone if you don't want to breach copyright laws. a hassle, but maybe you could start earning big if you have the capabilities of promoting your website. =) good luck
Napster, Imesh, Morpheus plus others all broke copy write laws. What did the labels on the other hand do? They said of course you can sell our music just stop giving it away free. I say if they turn you down then do something to make them change there mind. Like give it away free!
Why would we need another store for mainstream music? There are already lots of them out there.
What would be good is a store promoting some really good independent music.
my ideo was to offer music in high quality, not just 196kbps mp3's
start with local bands in your area
build from there once up and running with client base, they can advertise on your site and all the rest will work itself out
