Napster creator unveils new company

Snocap (founded by Napster’s Shawn Fanning) has developed technology that can identify digital music tracks shared across the internet and create a system to collect royalties on behalf of copyright owners.

Hey, that sounds Cool! No illegal file swapping anymore, eh ? If only Snocap can sneak behind .torrents/ares of the worlds and actually stop swapping from happening…as I realised, thats a BIG if. To make snocap work, users would need to use p2p service that work with Snocap as stated here “It was understood that a new file-swapping service called Mashboxx, expected to launch in January, would be the first peer-to-peer (P2P) network to harness Snocap’s technology.”

Grrr…why would someone use Mash* if he/she/it can get ripped music off Bit torrent in the first place !?

Moral of the story: Cool nothing. p2p will continue to grow leap & bounds & bleed the music industry (as seen on TV) to death.

[EDIT] I realised the BigDaddy of Blogs Slashdot already covered it.
