iMesh signs MusicNet for legal P2P downloads

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 11:54 am

P2P software company iMesh has signed digital music distributor MusicNet to supply it with songs as it attempts to transform its service into something the content industries will be happy with.

iMesh said it will offer MusicNet’s catalogue, which also sits behind music stores run by Virgin, HMV, AOL and Yahoo!, as one-off downloads and through a monthly subscription service. Essentially, consumers will be allowed to ’share’ their music libraries with other iMesh users, but downloading a protected song will “pop up” an opportunity to purchase the track.
