Rhapsody Launches Web-Based Digital Music Service

A Reuters newswire article, via Yahoo! News, reports that:

Digital media company RealNetworks Inc on Monday said it would launch a free, Web-based version of its Rhapsody digital music subscription service.

Marketing Rhapsody as both a Web service and a desktop service is part of a larger shift for RealNetworks, which recently reached a settlement in its antitrust lawsuit against Microsoft Corp.

RealNetworks had sued its long-time rival, claiming Microsoft's decision to bundle its own media player within its Windows operating system hurt sales of the RealNetworks player.
