Back in February we wrote about Snocap:

Snocap is aimed at legitimizing peer to peer, end to end music distribution through networks sanctioned by music labels. Once songs have been registered and copyright information has been placed in to Snocap’s database, the labels themselves are able to manage the P2P distribution of content by establishing business rules for individual tracks.

Basically, it’s a P2P system that you pay for.The NY Times ran a major article on Snocap at the weekend which is worth a read – but we seem to remember something that hasn’t been reported: rumor back in Feb was that file sharers would get a share of the revenue made from each sale of files they shared – a kind of affiliate scheme! Hmmm, something to watch maybe.
