Submission + - Bye Bye Lala (

Conchobair writes: Free online streaming music takes another blow as announced it closure effective May 31st, 2010. Lala's home page once claimed over 8 million licensed songs available. No new users are allowed to sign up, however current users may log in until the closure date. Users will receive a credit in the amount of their Lala web song purchases and remaining balances for use on Apple's iTunes Store.

No clear reason for the closure has been made, however it may be related to Lala's purchase by Apple on December 5, 2009 for more than $80M.
