Peer-to-peer file sharing backed by Sony BMG and EMI? Yup.

Mashboxx is a new P2P file sharing program for legal music downloads. Basically you can listen to any authorized track 5 times to see if you like it. After that you are restricted to a 30 second sampler, unless you decide to buy the song.

“According to the most recent NPD Digital Music Study, nearly 75 percent of P2P users found sampling to be important before deciding whether to purchase music.”

Looks promising, definitely something i would consider. You can sign up to test their beta product via their website. Check out the news section of their website for more details.

Also there is a BBC News website story here.

*UPDATE* And you thought that was good? Have you heard about Spiral Frog?

    Finally the industry are beginning to get the idea. now if only the songs weren’t lossy, were priced properly (why are old songs the same price as new ones, and how comes America plays less), maybe the problem of piracy wouldn’t be such a big thing.
