Universal's Making Music Free (With a Catch ...)

Looks like today's blogging is all about more and more.

Now we have Universal Music, home to artists such as U2, planning to make its catalog of recordings and music videos available for free on an ad-supported Web site that will launch later this year.

According to the buzz, SpiralFrog.com will split advertising revenue with the recording company.

Users can download an unlimited number of songs or music videos if they register at the site. Tracks cannot be burned to a CD, but users will be able to transfer music to portable media players equipped with Microsoft Windows digital rights management software.

However, the service will not work with Apple's Macintosh computers or its market-leading iPod music players. (Is that a good idea?)

Fine reporting from The Washington Post.
