This story has been updated. Original CopyCense coverage: March 16, 2006
“A new online music service called La La Media aims to offer full-length CDs for $1 by letting users trade discs, in a bid to avoid legal pitfalls that face online song trading.
“Backed with $9 million in funding by Bain Capital and Ignition Partners, La La works like an online music co-op by enabling members to trade physical CDs they own for physical CDs they want, Bill Nguyen, co-founder of La La, said ahead of the Tuesday announcement.
“With 1.8 million album titles available, members trade the CDs in prepaid envelopes, much like the way popular mail-order DVD service Netflix operates.”
