Mumbai: EMI Music has entered into an agreement with ad-supported digital music service Qtrax to make EMI’s catalog of digital music available to music fans in the US and Canada.
As part of the agreement, EMI’s music will be available free to registered Qtrax members for unlimited streaming or downloading to a PC. Fans can also load downloaded tracks on up to three portable devices and play them while their membership remains active. Those who wish to permanently own tracks can do so via direct Qtrax links to participating digital retailers.
"This is a revolutionary time for the music industry," said Qtrax founder and chairman Allan Klepfisz. "Guy Hands and EMI Music have demonstrated great vision and leadership and we couldn’t be more thrilled to have their support," he continued.
