I'm looking for a solution to sell music online (not to sell CD, but mp3  
  directly with download after payment ).

Is there a open source e-commerce solution ?

with OSCommerce ?

zen-cart can do it.  I havent tried, but some on their forum have.

Do one need to have a permission to do it? Do you know how does one
need to pay taxes?

If you don't own the music, then you can't sell it. If you do, you are  
committing a copyright violation. If you're doing it in the US, you can  
expect the RIAA to come after you with a VERY large lawsuit, and possibly  
even criminal prosecution. I don't know about other countries.

If you own the music, (I don't mean you bought a CD - I mean you wrote it),  
then you can sell all you want. Otherwise, you will need to obtain  
permission from those who own the copyright. Even if they're friends of  
yours, you should get contracts permitting the resale.

If you are running a business, then you will need to pay the appropriate  
taxes, which vary by location.

I would strongly suggest checking with your local Chamber of Commerce or an  
attorney if you are planning this - those are fairly basic questions to be  
asking, and you should get a good foundation and understand what you're  
getting into before you put a lot of work into something.

I think osCommerce can do exactly this.
