Walmart No Longer In The Music Biz

If you can’t beat ’em — quit.

That’s the approach Wal-Mart is taking when it comes to digital music sales. The world’s largest retailer says it will stop selling MP3s at the end of this month. Those who have already bought digital tunes through the Wal-Mart site can continue to use and manage their music there. Wal-Mart began selling digital music in 2003 to compete with Apple’s iTunes. But iTunes has gone on to become the largest seller of digital music. Wal-Mart also faces tough competition from Amazon.com.
