Ten years later…

January 28, 2008

…it would appear the music industry has finally caved. They’ve banded together to form a new venture called Qtrax. From what I can tell, this site allows anyone to download music to play anywhere for nothing. Has anyone tried this yet? Any predictions on whether or not this will be a lifeboat for the big labels?

    QTrax already tanked before it even launched. turns out they didn’t have the major label deals they said they did.
    Plus, ad-supported free music won’t work when free is still available. Will you listen to an ad before a song, every time it plays? Nope. I don’t listen to the radio for that reason (among others), so I can’t imagine people are going to deal with that to assuage their guilt.

    Besides, it was tried already by a company called Spiralfrog, which tanked before it even went live.
