Free-Music Champion Jamendo Nets 10,000 Albums, Adds Partners               23rd June 2008

Jamendo, a music sharingservice which originally launched more than two years ago in 2006, and has maintained a firm ideal of free-to-download and free-to-listen media consumption, earlier this week announced its having massed a catalogue 10,000 albums strong. This news follows the website’s recognition in March 2007 of 1.5 million downloads from its Creative Commons-bound collection.

The site is pursuing still larger goals, too. Ben Jones of TorrentFreak tipped his hat today to word delivered by the peer-to-peer site earlier this month that all songs published via Jamendo have been made available to isoHunt users.

As part of the new partnership, all corresponding files when viewed in isoHunt search results are said to be highlighted so as to easily distinguish independent music traced back to Jamendo. IsoHunt founder Gary Fung of course spoke enthusiastically of the new arrangement between both parties. He noted a parallel support for the principles espoused by the Creative Commons licensing system.

While 10,000 albums, or roughly 150,000 songs, may seem a relatively small number when compared to what the broader music industry holds in its archives, Jamendo’s ability to build a supply of Creative Commons material of a substantive quantity is revealing of the desire of a sizable base of musicians to champion the distribution of tracks by way of more liberal methods than traditional copyright holders have legally allowed on the Web thus far. Not to mention free distribution.
