Interesting article in TG Daily today.
As the battle wages on between the music industry and those who download tracks without paying, it’s clear record execs are having a hard time getting a handle on the situation. Enter 7 Sky Media.The Danish company is taking a somewhat of a novel approach to "pirated" music by offering music bigwigs a way to monetize unauthorized copyrighted tracks.
"Our software is designed to play all digital files and locate the copyright holders regardless of where the file came from," Bo Schønemann of 7 Sky Media told Comon.dk.

No comment about how they are handling legal tracks? exactly how do they think they can tell a legal and illegal mp3?
And as a user of this app....does it mean the MPAA can no longer sue me as "i'm paying a license fee" for these tracks through the use of this application?
Where does this leave end users legally? Any thoughts?
