We're looking at promoting Ruckus's music service on campus this fall.  While it is Windows-only, it is a free service 
for students with a .edu email addresses - 
http://ruckus.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/ruckus.cfg/php/enduser/std_adp.php?p_faqid=20 .  A quick survey matching the songs 
listed in DMCA notifications versus the available catalog showed that around 95% of the songs were available on Ruckus.

Hi Steve,
  Here at WSC we use a service called Ruckus (www.ruckus.com)
installation and hardware was free (as long as you have at least 3000
students to sign-up in the first year).  Students can listen to songs
for free through their proprietary player (runs on Windows only for
now).  If they want a copy of the song on their hard drive they pay $1
per song.

Subject: [SECURITY] music download discounts

As part of our effort to revamp our DMCA compliance and education 
efforts I'm trying to find a company or service that would offer our 
28,000 students a discount on legal music downloads. I would want them 
to be able to take the music with them when they leave unlike some 
subscription based services that are out there.  We would simple get 
them access to our captive audience and help them advertise in exchange 
for a substantial discount for our constituents. We wouldn't actually be

offering to pay for anything.  Just a partnership to get them easy 
direct access to a lot of potential customers.

If anyone has had some experiences in this area let me know...
