now free music from EMI music and Universal in

Ever dreamed of downloading free, yet legal music from popular artists? is an ad-supported, free music and video downloading website and they have recently signed a new licensing deal with EMI music. Last year, signed a similar deal with Universal Music group. This latest licensing deal with EMI gives users the access to content from two out of four major recording companies. users from Canada and U.S can download music and videos for free. The cover their bandwidth bills and pay rights holders through the revenue generated with online advertisements shown on their site. However they have one small catch – music downloaded from their website contains DRM that makes it playable only on Windows based computers (i.e tracks downloaded from their website can’t be played back on iPod or other portable music devices). already has 1.1 millions tracks and over 4,000 music videos. The number will significantly rise once EMI’s content gets included in their catalogue. The company is currently pursuing other labels to sign licensing deals and they are hopeful about getting content other major labels.
It feels good to download tracks for free, but also pay the rights holder through a portion of ad revenue. No guilt involved! As of now, is open to users from U.S and Canada only
