I love using "social-engineering" music sites like Pandora & Last.FM. So when Mecora added mobile streaming I was intrigued, and expected Microsoft’s Jason "Mr. Mobile" Langridge to review’s the product. (I’m teasing. Everybody is busy with Windows Vista, and Office & Exchange 2007)
Thankfully, blogger David Strom provides a review Mercora M Streams Desktop Audio To Windows Smartphones. It’s interesting "how" Mecora avoids the copyright issue.
"Mercora’s mission is to catalog and organize the world’s music and make it universally searchable and legally listenable. Quite simply: Mercora has built the world’s largest and legal music radio network composed almost entirely of music resident on people’s computers. Our strategy is to:
- Create the world’s largest music catalog by leveraging peer-to-peer technologies and user contributed content.
- Unleash the music by building technologies that make this content available to anyone on the network in the form of CD-quality broadcasts.
- Delight the listener by providing great search, discovery, personalization and community services.
- Uphold the letter and spirit of the copyright law by building compliance and reporting into our products and services and paying performance royalties to organizations that represent songwriters and music record labels.
