Musicmatch was later acquired by Yahoo, announced on September 14, 2004. After the acquisition it was later rebranded under the Yahoo portfolio, with major features being removed or limited to Yahoo music subscribers as of version 10. The software was changed to favor active subscribers of their yahoo music service. As the state of the web evolved with regards to multimedia and content rich websites, the software was phased out entirely, as features became integrated into the Yahoo music website. Yahoo eventually discontinued the desktop software entirely in favor of their web service and web platform.
In the principle of listing this software with links to the software as it was known in its prime to Musicmatch fans -- before limitations were introduced, this listing links to the archive.org page of MusicMatch.com as of September 13, 2004, one day before the acquisition by Yahoo was announced.
