Brilliant Technologies Corporation (BLLN) is currently preparing for the launch of Qtrax, the company's innovative P2P file-sharing service and has already signed deals with Universal, Sony/ATV, Warner Music Group, The Orchard, EMI Music Publishing and EMI Music, TVT Records, Go Digital, ASCAP and BMI.
Qtrax will be the world's first free and legal global download music service and showcases an innovative ad-supported downloading model that easily directs revenue back to artists and rights holders. Qtrax has successfully signed licensing deals with major labels, music publishers and leading indies. Qtrax will soon provide fans with access to a colorful and diverse catalog with millions of high-quality, high-fidelity digital music files. Based in New York City, Qtrax is a subsidiary of Brilliant Technologies Corporation.
Baidu Partners With Qtrax For Ad-Supported Music Downloads
Baidu (NSDQ: BIDU)-which has come under fire for linking to illegal music downloads-is partnering with ad-supported music download service Qtrax to change that. …
… Qtrax lets users download songs to their PCs for free and later move them to a portable device, although they need to be synced once a month. The company has had deals with all four major record labels since February.
Google (NSDQ: GOOG) has tried to challenge Baidu's dominance in China with its own legal music download service, which it launched in partnership with the major labels in late March. With the Qtrax partnership, therefore, Baidu should now be able to claim somewhat of a comparable offering.
Baidu, Inc. currently traded on the NASDAQ Global Select Market under the symbol "BIDU" is the leading Chinese language Internet search provider. As a technology-based media company, Baidu aims to provide the best way for people to find information. In addition to serving Internet search users, Baidu provides an effective platform for businesses to reach potential customers.
After 'Embarassing Launch' Qtrax Finally Has All The Majors On Board
The service reached deals with EMI, Universal Music Group and Sony (NYSE: SNE) Music Entertainment by December. Now, with the signing of Warner Music Group (NYSE: WMG), Qtrax says it's ready for a full do-over. CEO Allan Klepfisz told AP: "We had a somewhat embarrassing launch. Now, we clearly do want to make a lot of noise."
