New York – Warner Music Group announced on Monday that it has licensed its tracks for streaming and limited downloading on Brilliant Technologies' Qtrax, an ad-supported free file-sharing network. Qtrax has also licensed songs from EMI, BMI and the Association of Independent Music. "The Qtrax service represents an innovative business model, one that offers our artists another way to reach fans using the potential of peer-to-peer technology while ensuring they are fairly compensated for the use of their work, said George White, senior vice president of strategy and product development for WMG. The Qtrax ad-supported file-sharing service — which will use audio fingerprinting technology from Audible Magic to ensure only licensed tracks are shared — is scheduled to launch in beta later this year.
