EMI Pacts With FreeAllMusic.com
January 19, 2010 at 2:40 PM (PT)
EMI MUSIC has licensed music to ad-supported music service FREEALLMUSIC.COM. It's the second major label, after UMG, to partner with the fledgling website.
CNET.COM reports that FREEALLMUSIC.COM is the latest company to support the offering of free songs to the public with ad sales -- after companies such as SPIRALFROG, IMEEM and RUCKUS have failed. Only PANDORA has been able to turn a profit.
According to a press release, FREEALLMUSIC will offer users DRM-free MP3s for users who agree to watch "one brief video commercial" per download.
