    SAN DIEGO, April 20 /PRNewswire Interactive News Release/ -- Less than a
 month after its debut, MP3.com's (Nasdaq:   MPPP) Music Licensing Program (MLP)
 (www.mp3.com/musicsupervisor) is attracting attention from directors,
 producers and music supervisors who are using the MLP to license music for
 film, television, corporate productions, advertising campaigns and other
 projects.
     Warren Miller's ski and snowboard films have experienced a huge worldwide
 cult following over the past 52 years and rely heavily on music to complement
 the stunning photography, humorous narration and adrenaline-pumping action.
 Warren Miller's latest film "Cold Fusion" is slated to appear in approximately
 300 cities around the world during the 2001-02 touring season.
     "Cold Fusion" is a prime example of how MP3.com's revolutionary new
 program can work to help productions with tight timelines find and license
 music with ease.
     "Inquiries have been coming in from television networks, film studios, and
 major advertising firms," said Michael Bayer, Director of the Music Licensing
 Program at MP3.com.  "The word is definitely spreading that the Music
 Licensing Program is a fantastic new way to find and license incredible
 music."
     As with past films, the opening sequence is expected to include an amazing
 ski and snowboard montage set to a hard-rocking tune.  Warren Miller Films is
 utilizing the "Post an Opportunity" component of the MP3.com Music Licensing
 Program to describe the specific music they are looking for and to invite
 artists enrolled in the program to submit music for consideration.  Once a
 song is selected, the balance of the licensing transaction can be completed
 quickly and efficiently through the online program.  To be eligible for
 consideration, artists may enroll in the Music Licensing Program at
 www.mp3.com/licensing.
     "MP3.com is a great resource to find fresh, new music," stated Kurt Miller
 Chairman of Warren Miller Films.  "The notion of posting a licensing
 opportunity and letting specific music come to a music supervisor on spec is
 truly innovative and innovation is something that Warren Miller Films and
 MP3.com have in common."
     Warren Miller Films will also look for other potential tracks for the film
 by using another component of the Music Licensing Program, the "Licensing
 Search Tool."  This dynamic search engine allows music supervisors looking for
 specific songs to choose from attributes in nine categories, including mood,
 tempo and featured instruments.  The search engine then combs the database and
 provides a list of matching songs for the music supervisor to sample and, if
 they choose, to license.
     Fans of stunning photography, heart-pounding action and thrilling music
 are encouraged to view any and all of Warren Miller's 52 amazing films.  Visit

 Program should visit www.mp3.com/musicsupervisor to subscribe to the service.

 Licensing Services Provider, enableyourmusic.com (www.enableyourmusic.com.)
