Last.fm to start charging international users
It seems Last.fm has hit the same wall of international licensing fees as Pandora.com. The online radio service has announced that users outside of the US, UK and Germany will need to start paying €3.00 a month to continue streaming music.
It's still free if you only want to use it to find out about gigs, venues and new music, but it would be naieve to suggest this is what gets most people to the site in the first place.
It will be interesting to see what affect this will have, as there are are a number of websites that offer similar services such as seeqpod. com
