Vimeo is Starting a Vimeo Music Store

It's been the Summer of streaming music services, but all has been (mostly) quite on the Vimeo front, the "upscale" (for lack of a better word) streaming video site. Now it looks like a Vimeo Music Store is in the works ... but it might not be what you initially think.

It's a good idea though. According to Paul Resnikoff at Digital Music News, the Vimeo Music Store will "contain thousands of pre-licensed, legit tracks for video producers to employ as soundtracks. That will make it even easier for the higher-end Vimeo crowd to properly license their visual audio - and compensate creators accordingly."

Moby did the same thing a while back with his own MobyGratis project, now Vimeo is working with Audiosocket to create a music licensing service for video soundtracks at Vimeo.com. There does seem to be a lack of effective soundtrack licensing services out there, or at least awareness of them (here come the emails).

There's no word yet on how this will connect to Vimeo Plus and Vimeo Pro users as opposed to freemium users.
