Qtrax and it's lies

posted under by Philip Howlett
I saw the hype build around Qtrax when it was announced a few days, and to be honest, I thought the whole thing was too good to be true. The concept was a legal P2P programme, boasting a ridiculous library of songs to download for free. The music industry would make their money through advertising on the site, therefore making everyone happy. What a brilliant idea, possibly the future of music distribution! Well, not quite.

It seems that Qtrax doesn't actually have any major record labels signed up yet, and it doesn't look like they're going to either. There's an article on BBC news about this which you might want to look at. This comes as a major disappointment for me, as I thought the record labels were beginning to see the light. Obviously not.
