Sony Frees Music For File-Sharers

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 12:44 pm

The first net service provider aimed at people who want to share music legally has struck a significant deal with global music giant Sony BMG.

Playlouder MSP, launching at the end of September, will let its customers share Sony licensed music with others on its network.

In return, Playlouder will pool some of its broadband subscriptions to share with music rights owners.

The deal is seen as a groundbreaking move to use file-sharing legally.

The deal signals the first time that music fans can use existing popular peer-to-peer (P2P) applications such as Kazaa, eDonkey and Limewire, to share music in an unrestricted and sanctioned way.
