- Yahoo Japan announced the expansion of its online music distribution service, a move that would allow its customers to listen to selected songs in full before they decide to make the purchase. Yahoo Japan is the first company to make the offering. The company said it would launch under the new service about 100,000 songs. Competition in Japan's online music services increased after Apple launched its iTunes online music store in Japan, a service allowing the availability of more than 1 million songs. Yahoo Japan is expecting to earn advertising revenue and commissions from song sales.
