-- This weekend, CD Baby is going to introduce a number of new features at its retail Web site: a la carte downloading, artist pages, a music uploaded and download cards. The fee for CDBaby.com downloads will be 25%, quite a bit more than its typical 9% share but understandable considering it must bear the infrastructure costs and credit card processing fees.

-- A Philadelphia man has sued Live Nation for misrepresenting its "No Service Fee Wednesday" promotion. The plaintiff bought tickets on one Wednesday that cost $7.75 each and included $12.25 in fees. Another batch of tickets purchased a few days later cost $29, not including $6 for parking and a $0.25 charity fee (which Live Nation says it required by its lease with the venue owner). "They have this ticket fee system that seems to be elastic," said the attorney. Instead of considering the final price paid, customers like this man are more concerned with the components of the price. It's likely some customers would be happier to pay 75% higher in face value, pay no fees (or nothing that is broken out and termed a fee) and end up parting with more cash. (AP)
