Vimeo's Got a New Music Store for Easy Soundtracks

You've got your gorgeous, HD DSLR-shot movie all ready to upload. But you need music. And you really, really don't want to get sued. Vimeo's hoping you'll park your film with them, by way of an easy soundtracking service.


The Vimeo "Music Store," open today, offers over 45,000 songs—free via Creative Commons, $2 tracks for personal use, and $100 licenses if you're planning on earning some dough from your creation. Unfortunately, even the $100 songs are from "emerging artists," which is code for bands you've never heard of before. They could still be good! And probably highly useful for an indie auteur who wants something affordable to make a movie sound as good as it looks. But you're not going to be able to score your film with anything recognizable, which is a bummer if you want to use Lil Wayne's "Shooter" for an opening title sequence, which I've always thought would be really cool.

Has anyone else been able to find this elusive music store the article speaks of? I wanted to check it out, but there's no trace of it via the link. Even tried googling "Vimeo music store" — nothing.
