ARTIST MAITREYA TRUSTS WEED

Sananda Maitreya's Angles & Vampires features his own version of TrustyFiles P2P file-sharing software — distributing Weed-format files over the major P2P networks, which can be accessed at http://p2pfiles.com/sw/Sananda/SanandaTF.exe. [For additional information on Weed, see “Notes From the Net” in the January 2004 issue of Mix.]

“It's not enough to just create protected files and say, ‘Here's my music, please download,’” said Maitreya. “RazorPop's TrustyFiles software is perfect for me to ask my fans to share my music and continue to stay close to them.”

According to Marc Freedman, founder and CEO of RazorPop, “Fifty percent of Internet users share music and other files. If you're a major artist, shouldn't your fans and Web visitors be sharing files on software with your name and logo where you can directly sell your digital downloads, CDs, DVDs and other merchandise?”
