UMG, FreeAllMusic, sucker play

Quote says it’s running on a “walk before we run” philosophy in “slowly building its user and advertiser base”.

Cynics might suggest this could be interpreted as: people aren’t exactly signing on in droves, and advertises aren’t exactly falling over themselves to buy space.

However, a new deal might help.

France’s Universal Music Group is pumping ad-sponsored ‘product’ into FreeAllMusic, according to a statement from the two companies.

But (thank you, Lord) only in America.

To get these polluted downloads, people are expected to register — and you know what that means — after which they have to “select a participating brand they prefer (prefer? heh) and “watch a brief video from that brand”.

Then, after each download, “ serves additional advertisements for that brand across targeted websites”.

Not only but also, “Visitors to those sites will see ads displaying information about downloads, supporting brands, and”

And [wait for it] “Users can also email information about their download to friends, who can also download it legally for free … if they watch the ad, too. Sharing of download activity can also be posted on popular social networking sites.”

Well, they say there’s a sucker born very minute …

Thankfully I have no clue what sort of music is being pushed out to consumers by the recording industry at this time as I have boycotted them for many years now and enjoy the free music put out by independant artists, let them keep their crap and their advertising, if its all about money I dont think I want it.
