Qtrax is a company which offers free downloads to consumers while profiting by selling advertising. At least that is hypothetically what Qtrax does, right now it seems Qtrax does not do much of anything. After a planned roll out of the Qtrax service for Asian/ Pacific countries was pushed back indefinitely Qtrax’s planned December 24th press conference was also canceled. Qtrax now plans to roll out their service in January, but with a Spotify US release on the horizon Qtrax will have difficulty maintaining the confidence of major label executives in the neccesity of giving away their music for free. Although digital downloading continues its torrid pace it seems like labels owners are still not ready to compromise with digital distributors on a price per track that would enable an ad supported free legal download website to survive.
