If I were a Lala user, I’d be pretty angry right now: last week Apple announced that the service is closing May 31st.
Why should Lala users have to waste time and effort working out what to do about the music stored on Lala’s servers which, presumably, disappears into the ether on May 31st? Isn’t it incumbent on Apple, as Lala’s acquirer, to continue to offer the service as designed to the people who had signed up for that service?
At Psonar we offer our users and prospective users this pledge – we will never do anything that denies you perpetual access to your music other than due to events beyond our control. And, if we are forced to change or take down the service, we will do all we can to ensure users get adequate notice (cerainly more than a paltry 31 days) and are given a means to transfer their music elsewhere. We believe that this is the minimum pledge that a service like Psonar should make to its users.
