Scour is back -- just legal this time

CenterSpan Communications, company that bought Scour's technological assets in bankruptcy court earlier this year, has relaunched the Scour Exchange service for a limited number of beta testers.
Major difference in the service is the fact that now it's possible to download only legal content. Company uses now Microsoft's digital media rights management software which secures the transferred downloads.

Company has made several content providing deals with names such as EMusic, Crush Media and TVParty.com.

Scour Exchange used to be the best place to get videos, images and other material that Napster doesn't support without tweaking. But because of wide-spread illegal file sharing through the service, Scour got into legal troubles from RIAA and MPAA and therefor filed a bankruptcy in last year.
