Mobile music recognition
'Mobile music recognition' company Shazam launched in Britain a year ago this month with a service built around a song recognition application able to identify recorded audio - from a distance.
With it, mobile users can recognize and tag any piece of music, any time they hear it thanks to a hosted service platform driven by Europe's largest music information database holding more than 1,600,000 music tracks, meta data and cover art, and built by Shazam.
In the year it's been around, Shazam has, "attracted more than 500,000 users in the UK, allowing them to 'tag' tracks for 50p a time by pointing their mobile at a speaker in a pub, club, shop, restaurant or in the car,' says Britain's The Guardian.
"After 30 seconds, Shazam's technology will have identified the song from its database of 1.7 million tracks and immediately sends a text message to the user revealing the title and artist. Shazam has also launched a number of spin-off products, including the ability to send a clip of a favourite song to a friend and order songs as ringtones."

The story says Shazam hopes record companies will eventually allow it to sell singles electronically or by mail, via the service and has already signed deals with Universal Music, Warner Music and, "the 400 labels represented by the Association of Independent Music, giving it the rights to use 30-second clips of tracks for its Songmail service."
