A social network; a music player; a way to reap the benefits of illegal downloading. Yep, you read that correctly: reap in the benefits of illegal downloading. Tunems.com is completely free to use. You can upload tracks, completely free. The best part? Every time someone downloads your free music, you’re getting paid. Each download costs nothing to the listener, yet each download compensates the artists as if the listener paid for it. How can that get any better? Tunems.com works on the idea of a sponsorship. To give you an idea, let’s use sports: when you go to a sports game, you might go to AT&T Stadium. Maybe on the side of the field, you’ll see an EA Sports ad. Hell, you’ll probably go get a Miller Lite during the game, and where your jersey that has Samsung written across it. All those companies pay to have their names associated with a team, so why not the same for music? Sponsors, through mainly customizable options, have the ability to sponsor artists, no matter how big or small. They can choose them based on location, genre, name, popularity, etc, and as long as they’re budget allows, sponsor the group. Each download is paid for by the sponsors.
