MP3 licensing.

Now here’s interesting. A couple of enterprising employees have bought out the company’s Trusonic service from Universal. This was the music licensing arm of which sells tunes to shops, offices and the like – a sort of Muzak supplier. The fascinating thing is that the purchasers now own –

‘all the related software and licenses to more than 1.5 million songs by independent artists.’

So suddenly it’s a little clearer why the archive of songs on couldn’t be saved for posterity. Money, money, money?
