FREE MUSIC FOR ALL! The Music Business Model of The Future
Is really amazing to see that people are beginning to explore the possibility of giving music away for free and still make money. This is a great article on ArsTechnica about We7, Peter Gabriel’s new company that will be giving away music for free the music because of their ad placement on every song. Here is part of the article from ArsTechnica:
Peter Gabriel is one of the founding investors of a new music download service that offers tracks for free to users who are willing to listen to ads. The service, called We7 for some reason, offers MP3 versions of tracks with advertising attached to the beginning of songs. Four weeks after downloading the track, the user can then download a version without the ad. Artists get paid by the advertisers, music lovers get free tunes, and advertisers get to reach music lovers.
