- At the MIDEM conference in Cannes, Napster and Ericsson unveiled an Italian-based Napster Mobile music service with operator Telecom Italia. This is Napster's a la carte download service, not a mobile "all-you-can-eat" subscription service. The service is linked with Sony Ericsson Walkman series phones.

- Also announced at MIDEM, Sunrise Communications unveiled the Sunrise Musicworld mobile music service in Switzerland, a combination online and mobile accessible music download store run by 24-7 Entertainment. Video and ringtone elements are planned for this spring.

- Not at MIDEM, but mobile nonetheless, Nokia has reportedly begun warning members of its TWANGO mobile social networking service that it will begin filtering out copyrighted content. According to a post on PaidContent, the email reads: "Over the next few days we will be implementing an automated system which will identify and remove copyrighted commercial content. You may notice some existing content will no longer be available." The content-sharing capabilities of Nokia's mobile social networks was a cause of concern for Warner Music Group, causing the label to withhold its catalog from Nokia's recently launched Ovi mobile music service. At MIDEM, Nokia officials said it expects more labels to join its Comes With Music free music service very soon.
