Free Music from Universal via new SpiralFrog Service

This coming December Universal plans to launch a website offering free downloads of their music
catalog. The site will be called SpiralFrog, and according to CEO Robin Kent the site "will offer
consumers a better experience and environment than they can get from any pirate site". Kent also
stated that "Offering young consumers an easy-to-use alternative to pirated music sites will be
compelling." Kent also highlighted some key factors such as legal digital files with no viruses or
spyware in a controlled client-server architecture, quick downloading, and quality songs and music
videos by great artists as among the primary benefits users will gain. The free music will be paid for
by advertising on the site.
