The Addition Of MP3s Makes Peer Impact The First Codec Agnostic Legal P2P Network
Wurld Media announced its legal peer-to-peer (P2P) network, Peer Impact, will now offer MP3s from leading independent music labels in addition to DRM protected content. Peer Impact, which offers protected content from all four major music labels, now becomes the first legal P2P and the first music service to offer digital content in a format that is codec agnostic.
With this announcement, Peer Impact adds to its growing content catalogue as well as its growing diversity of supported file formats. These MP3s, approximately 100,000 to start, will be available for sale and redistribution on the network. Like music offered from the four majors, all MP3s for sale over Peer Impact are pristine content, not filtered or commingled with viruses or pornography as is commonly found on the existing peer-to-peer networks.
"Wurld Media has made a commitment to our users -- the Peer Impact community -- to provide them with as much legal digital content as possible so they can easily and conveniently purchase music when they want it and the way they want it," said Gregory Kerber, chairman and CEO of Wurld Media. "The addition of MP3s to the catalogue allows more freedom for both consumers and copyright holders and moves us towards the goal of the most diverse catalogue of legal, digital content available online."
