BBM Music has CLEARLY stated from the beginning it would be a pay subscription, pay application from the very beginning of its introduction. You should not be surprised, I know this has been clear, and if by chance you missed it, you now have a month's warning.

The monthly cost is £4.99. BBMM is an additional service to the standard BlackBerry service, the cost of which mainly provides a data bundle as well as the BBM and push email.
As I understand it the BBMM cost is to cover the license fee charged by the music providers.

Yes, that's the case. As I understand RIM don't make much out of the BBMM subscription, it pretty much all goes to the music providers.
The way I see it is £4.99 per month is 10p per track, to buy that track would be (for example) 79p on I tunes so I get nearly 8 mth use before I have spent the same. I have over 10000 tracks at the minute and have discovered music I had forgotten about and music I had never listened to and is now part of my playlists. So pretty good value.
