MP3 has had a further boost, with the announcement of a search facility that will enable Internet users to search for tracks compressed in the format geographically.
MP3.com, the 21st Century Music Company, has released the Geographic Music Search System (GMSS) that will let visitors to its site locate MP3 artists by searching via state, city or country.
?Music is all about sharing and our geographic search system enables that on a global or local scale, whichever you want,? explained Michael Robertson, ceo of MP3.com. ?Using data to enhance the music lover?s experience on the Web and the artist?s ability to reach a larger audience are crucial objectives for MP3.Com.?
The GMSS system can currently locate 7,200 MP3 artists in 92 countries. After the US and Canada the top four countries are the UK, Sweden, Germany and Australia. MP3.Com, which is at the forefront of providing MP3 formatted music to the online community, believes that this figure will grow rapidly.
