There is a new kid on the block which is still in beta form and calls itself Qtrax. According to their web site they are offering free and legal music downloads. On their site they state:

Qtrax is the world’s first free and legal peer-to-peer (P2P) digital music site. Music lovers can discover new music and legally download full-length, high-quality versions of their favorite songs while compensating both the artists and the record labels through non-intrusive and relevant advertising. Qtrax has the unparalleled support of the major record labels and all of their respective publishing divisions. Qtrax and its components are developed by LTDnetwork Inc. a division of Brilliant Technologies Corporation.

They also boast of not having any spyware,  spoofing or adware. In addition they state they have a database of some 25 million songs.

This may be a way to get free music without the fear of the record company showing up at your house with a bug fat lawsuit in hand. 🙂

Comments welcome.
