O site de musica das varias majors (

«In a major increase in the availability of legal free music, the world's largest record label has agreed to let users of a fast-growing website listen to its entire catalog of digitized music files.
Universal Music Group struck the deal with, a music-oriented social networking site, in exchange for a cut of the revenue from advertising viewed while its songs are playing.
The deal by the label for artists including U2, Amy Winehouse and Black Eyed Peas brings the last of the four major record companies to Imeem, which lets users listen while on the site but not download their own copies.
Each play of a song will net Universal a guaranteed minimum of a fraction of a cent, even if no ads are viewed, a person familiar with the arrangement said Sunday. That clause is believed to be the first of its kind for any ad-driven deal with a label.
"We're embracing the ad-supported business model. These are our crown jewels: on-demand, full-length tracks," said Universal Executive Vice President Rio D. Caraeff. "Imeem is the largest deal we have struck to date."» fonte : «Universal Music Group, Imeem strike deal», By Joseph Menn, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer, December 10, 2007
