The Spanish Weblisten.com has been one of the pioneering companies in commercial online MP3 services. Now they are launching a new service called Puretones, which offers paid MP3 downloads from an unlimited selection of music - previously commercial online music shops have been carving deals with record companies, which limits their inventory. Puretones says that they are utilizing a hole that they have discovered in Spanish copyright laws. If they really are able to pull this, it gives them a clear edge against competitors such as Apple iTunes.
The new Madrid-based company, called Puretunes, is the second Spanish web service to try offering access to a vast and otherwise unavailable catalogue of music online without directly securing the record labels' permission.
.. Javier Siguenza, Puretunes general counsel, said in a statement: "It is evident by the enormous popularity of P2P and supporting MP3 players that the consumers are demanding their music digitally. Puretunes has pioneered a product that allows consumers to get the music they want digitally, without restriction, while compensating the rights holders for their works."Silicon.com
