Universal finally signs deal with imeem Universal has finally signed a deal with the popular social playlist site imeem, becoming the last of the big four record labels to do so.
imeem, by its own description, is "an online community where artists, fans & friends can promote their content, share their tastes, and discover new blogs, photos, music and video."

User can upload their own content or "browse and add catalog content." imeem also makes it easy to embed original content hosted by imeem on other sites such as Myspace and blogs.

The new deal opens up Universal's full music and video catalog to imeem users. The deal however, may not have been cheap. imeem is "said to have paid cash up front as well as given Universal stock in the website."

Around since 2004, imeem now boasts 19 million unique visitors daily with 50000 becoming members daily.

Same low-res video like Youtube. Distracting ads that appear on the video. Stage6 is far better because you can upload,embed and download full .avi movies.

Besides you're missing the point neither stage6 or youtube allow users to upload mp3's from their favourite bands, instead they have to add a video over the top of the music.
