QTRAX V.2 Beta Launches at Midem-Service Sees 61,000 Unique Users Per Hour

    NEW YORK, Jan. 28 /CNW/ - MIDEM CONFERENCE -- QTRAX (www.QTRAX.com) --
the world's first free and legal peer-to-peer music service announced that at
today's V.2 Beta launch, its ground-breaking service had approximately
61,000 unique users per hour (between 7am and 1pm EST). This translates to
approximately 1,464,000 unique users per day. QTRAX believes that a
significant percentage of users were unable to access the site due to this
massive demand and has now dramatically increased its download capacity.
    "The response to the service is clearly unprecedented. We launched at
MIDEM, the leading music industry conference, precisely because of the degree
of support we have had and continue to enjoy from rights holders," said QTRAX
President and CEO Allan Klepfisz. "We believe the exact nature of that support
will be publicly clarified within a very short time. As the world's first free
and legal P2P service that has chosen to spend 4.5 years on licensing and not
to violate IP rights, we have decided that we will provide activation keys
shortly upon final execution of all pertinent contracts."
    In the meantime, users will be able to enjoy all other functionalities of
the QTRAX browser including importing and playing their existing music,
browsing the vast and rich content, purchasing artist merchandise and tickets,
and, for the first time, enjoying a fully integrated browsing and music
    The activation keys will enable users to experience full QTRAX V.2 Beta
functionality, including search, download, access content, and play.
    QTRAX has created a dynamic new music distribution model that represents
a paradigm shift in the way people consume music, how the industry can
monetize their catalogs and how artists get paid. The application download is
available immediately at www.QTRAX.com
