When Napster shut down their peer to peer service the RIAA rejoiced. They had scored another one for the anti-piracy campaign. The pirates were out of business.
This was true. Napster’s founder, Shawn Fanning had to file for bankruptcy in 2004. However when you are onto a great idea, there’s just no way to keep you down. He and his team may have had to close down their peer to peer network but they have come back strong. Their new product is Snocap. It is so useful that the myspace network utilizes it.
Snocap allows any artist to register online and upload their music for free. The company then verifies that the music is not owned by any other artist. Once they have confirmed this, the applicant is given a mystore. People can buy the music of these artists directly from these sites. Snocap charges 45 cents per song. The rest of the money goes directly to the band or performers which is truly great.
What is even better: anyone who likes the music of any specific band can easily help the band gain more fans and income. They simply click on share this music on the mystore and copy paste the code they are given to an email or to a website. It is really easy and the bands are truly appreciative. Now that is the way to go!
