Grokster, one of the world's largest peer-to-peer (P2P) networks, has signed a merchandising agreement with recording group, and former professional wrestlers, Insane Clown Posse.
It is the first such deal between a P2P company and a major band. Fans can download a free MP3 of the new single, Homies, on the Grokster start page.
Grokster will also be posting prominent messages to users exhorting them to: "Support the Artist. Buy the Record!"
The deal moves P2P closer to respectability, and is the brain child of Los Angeles-based online marketing company Net Music Promotions.
Trevor Lane, president at Net Music, explained that Grokster allowed his company to substantially increase awareness for Insane Clown Posse's new album.
The promotion also provides fans with a direct link to purchase the album online.
