Build Your Very Own Online Music Store: Digital Bazaar Releases Bitmunk P2P Sales Server Software
Expanding their offering to the digital music industry, Digital Bazaar announced version 1.0 of their Bitmunk peer-to-peer Sales Server software. Launched earlier this month, Bitmunk file distribution technology ensures that artists can distribute their music via a peer-to-peer based network while ensuring the proper royalties are paid to them by their fans.
According to Jupiter Media Metrix, online music downloads will become a $6.2 billion dollar per year industry by 2006. "The release of our sales server software will allow small companies, such as Internet Radio Stations and specialty music sites, to take part in this rapidly growing market." said Digital Bazaar CEO, Manu Sporny. "It will also allow moderate to large retailers with an online presence to sell digital music without investing in any online music store technology infrastructure." added Mike Johnson, COO of Digital Bazaar.
The Bitmunk Sales Server allows anybody with an Internet connection to sell music from their computer. The songs are provided by Bitmunk's ever expanding catalog of musicians from around the world. "We handle acquiring all of the music rights from the copyright holders," said Sporny, adding "There is no reason that there should only be a handful of online music stores - our technology allows anybody with a great idea for a music store to immediately start selling music. Not only do we support traditional businesses, but fans may support their favorite artists by re-selling any of their digital music with the Bitmunk Sales Server."
