UK ISP Will Create Music Download Alternative to P2P

British Internet service provider said that it is going to unveil a non-commercial music download service soon. Subscribers are promised free access to such service for several months. However, after that they would face a monthly fee.

It was almost a month ago that the country’s Culture Secretary and Communications and Creative Industries Minister had gathered representatives from entertainment companies and Internet service providers to have a discussion on developing legal alternatives to unauthorized file-sharing. Today there’s already a result of that discussion.

News of a leaked “invitation to tender” emerged recently in the web. The Guardian says that UK ISP BT is going to roll out some non-commercial music download service very soon. Such service is designed to give the ISP’s subscribers a new, legal alternative to unauthorized file-sharing. It is supposed to be free for 5.5 million subscribers to access initially. Then, after 6 to 9 months, the broadband provider would charge an undetermined monthly access fee.

Although there’re no details of the planned service, like how it would work or look like, there’s a chance that it will be so hobbled by demands of the entertainment industry that it’ll be rendered inert by the time it starts. Meanwhile, music fans have always disliked sites and services charging a fee for music they don’t even own. In fact, people rightly believe that even a few dollars a month is too much for “renting” music, particularly if it is quite difficult to access the tracks on the go.

On the other hand, in case such service would allow you to download unlimited number of songs, or some predetermined number, it will win the competition with some other legal music services like Apple’s iTunes, because those charge 0.99 per each track. In other words, if you are going to download more than a few songs per month, you would likely choose the new alternative, especially if it has enticing collection of music.

However, there’s a thing that neither BT nor the entertainment industry should forget about when planning credible alternatives to peer-to-peer: original P2P would always offer an unparalleled collection of music for free! It’s easy to realize that charging for content is the first turnoff for unauthorized file-sharers, which means that the new service will have to make it as reasonable as possible, particularly if it knows that its selection of music doesn’t come anywhere close to matching that of What.CD, for example.

No avatarYeah, right, the old 'free music' trick. Thanks, but no thanks.

When are they going to get it into their thick skulls, that the reason people don't pay for music, is BECAUSE THEY DON'T WANT TO PAY FOR MUSIC. And no matter how you repackage it, it's still corporate shit.
