The YouTube of MP3s

with one comment

With the recent hooplah over downloaded MP3s being illegal and such, it sounds too good to be true. It didn’t seem likely that any respectable company who didn’t want to get sued by the RIAA and their minions, would try to launch a website that did for MP3s what YouTube did for songs.

Well thank god for alternative business models.

Imeem
is just such a website – they will host MP3s LEGALLY, as long as the uploader had those MP3s. In a world of constantly connected computers, this means, I don’t have to download anything at all. I can make a playlist on Imeem and listen to my favourite sound tracks ala YouTube without fear of litigation or a guilty conscious.

How does it work, you ask ? Imeem has made agreements with major recording studios (Universal etc. ) that allows people to upload MP3s to Imeem. The recording studios, in turn get a percentage of the revenue from ads displayed on Imeem. The copyright holders gets paid, people hear music, Imeem becomes popular – everyone is happy!

Take a look at it. IMeems music database runs into the millions already. I am sure it will be entertaining.
