– Social music service WaTunes announced on Monday that it will phase out its
digital distribution services for independent artists and record labels. The
company said it will retain services for mobile applications, ringtones and
licensing, but instead focus solely on its social platform and online music
store. "This decision was truly a heartfelt one. We believed that our
distribution services were becoming so appealing that we could no longer
sustain it," said WaTunes CEO Kevin Rivers.
