The ad-supported music service QTRAX has announced a deal with its third major label: SONY, reports WIRED. As part of the deal, QTRAX will offer SONY's digital music catalog for free to those who install its music downloading client. As with QTRAX's deals with EMI and UNIVERSAL, SONY only agreed to license its regular digital music catalog, consisting of the same music it has already licensed to digital music stores like ITUNES and free, ad-supported sources such as IMEEM and SPIRALFROG.
"We are always exploring new and exciting ways of bringing our music to fans in the digital space and are very happy to support QTRAX and their innovative ad-supported business model," stated SONY Global Digital Business and U.S. Sales Pres. THOMAS HESSE.
