I’m a big Ian Rogers fan and with the acceptance of free ad supported music I’m sure he has got something much better up his sleeve.

Check out some of Ian Rogers presentations on the state of music on his blog here.

Yahoo has decided to get out of the music subscription service. Under a strategic partnership with Rhapsody America, Yahoo! will transfer all customers of its Yahoo! Music Unlimited subscription service to Rhapsody and market Rhapsody’s service on its Web site.

Ian Rogers, vice president of video and media applications at Yahoo!, said Yahoo!’s focus across all its media properties is to be a mass market leader in each of its categories by emphasizing free services. A music subscription service no longer fits that strategy, he said.

With the news that Yahoo Music exited the digital music rental business there are now only two players left  Rhapsody and Napster.
