China's leading music portal A8 will launch an online music supermarket in the hope of finding a new solution for the current music piracy problem.
Liu Xiaosong, CEO of A8, says that the online music supermarket, which will be accessible via wireless, network and mobile terminals, will be launched on February 20 and it will serve as a new music destination.
Prices for each song in the supermarket start from CNY0.5 and a monthly package fee is CNY15 for the time being.
In 2005, China's online music users broke 100 million. It is predicted that the number will hit 200 million by 2008.
