Deezer – 2.5 Million Free Songs and Music On Demand Without Download

Deezer – 2.5 Million Free Songs and Music On Demand Without Download
http://www.deezer.com/

Deezer is first of all the story of a music re-inventing website, set up by its two young founders Daniel Marhely and Jonathan Benassaya. Having launched a first music playing website called Blogmusik, voluntarily closed due to a music market in turmoil, they decided to implement their business model by negotiating with the major music rights owners. For the first time, in a move that made perfect sense, they signed an agreement with French royalty collecting agencies SACEM and SESAM on 22 August 2007. On the same date, the first French unlimited access, free and legal music playing website was launched. Deezer.com was born. The concept is simple: To offer, free of charge and legally, all kinds of music, from rock to hip-hop, jazz, electro and world music While at the same time, artists and rights owners receive a share of advertising revenue. Deezer has been highly successful due to its innovative offering and philosophy, which was widely hailed by the press. Less than two months after its launch, Deezer announced the acquisition of the catalogues of leading major and independent record companies: Sony BMG, Because Music, Believe On 14 May 2008, the website announced the signing of an international agreement with the giant Universal Music. The adventure continues, as the number of Deezer users increases with every passing day. In order to develop the offering more rapidly and implement its development strategy, the website decided to launch its own community network and expand its universe.
