Sep 19th, 2006 | By | Category: Digital Music

Warner Music Group and Brilliant Technologies Corporation today announced an agreement to offer music from Warner artists for streaming and limited download on Brilliant’s Qtrax legal peer-to-peer (P2P) music network.

Qtrax is an ad-supported P2P digital content distribution system designed to provide the legal sharing, distribution and intellectual property protection of content while driving new revenue streams from legal P2P online sampling of music, and promoting digital purchase or subscription.

Audible Magic Corporation’s digital fingerprinting and copyright filtering services will be used to limit unauthorized distribution of copyrighted content transferred via the Qtrax P2P network.

“WMG, being the largest U.S.-based family of recorded music labels, has made major moves in the area of digital distribution, maximizing the earning potential of their extensive catalog,” said Qtrax CEO, Allan Klepfisz in a statement. “We are proud to be in their stable of preferred distributors and look forward to working with them on developing the multi-million-transaction-per month marketplace of P2P.”
