GODIGITAL LICENSES CONTENT TO QTRAX; NEXT GENERATION RECORD LABEL ENDORSES QTRAX FOR AD-SUPPORTED P2P DIGITAL DISTRIBUTION

Brilliant Technologies Corporation (OTCBB:BLLN) and the GoDigital Music Group, which encompasses GoDigital, UrbanDigital and E-Klectrik Records, today jointly announced that GoDigital has licensed its content to Brilliant for distribution over the company's legal P2P music file sharing service, Qtrax.

"GoDigital Records is a truly digital record label and has been built from the ground up to accommodate the rapidly changing world of digital music and content," said Jason Peterson, President GoDigital Music Group. "We're not locked into age-old retail and distribution methods like some other companies out there. We welcome radical ideas and new thinking. Qtrax fits our philosophy perfectly."

According to Master P, Recording Artist & President of Guttar Music Entertainment and who releases his label's music digitally through UrbanDigital Records, "I release my music under UrbanDigital and GoDigital because they're at the forefront. Qtrax is turning P2P legit - it's the bizness, it's for real."

Allan Klepfisz, Brilliant Technologies' President & CEO, said, "By working closely with the major labels we generated considerable momentum behind Qtrax, and today's agreement with an industry and rights-leader like GoDigital further accelerates our preparation for launch The next quarter will be interesting as we put into place the requisite final building blocks to launch our cutting edge service. We and our partners are acutely aware of the potential Qtrax has for the industry and for our Company."

"We're excited about Qtrax's unique, ad-supported model for harnessing existing material on P2P networks," said Dave Lindsay, GoDigital VP Business Development and Technology. "This, in conjunction with their permanent download function, will be a boon for content owners and consumers alike. Qtrax enables us to have our artists' music in more places than ever before. It's great for headliners like Master P and Romeo, as well as our developing artists like FIN, Tom Langford, and Terron Brooks."

Brilliant's recent label deals have been accelerating, including announcing a licensing deal with Warner Music Group yesterday, with The Orchard two weeks ago, with EMI Music Publishing last month, and going back with EMI Music, TVT Records, ASCAP (the Performing Rights Organization that represents the world's largest repertory totaling over 8 million copyrighted musical works of every style and genre) and BMI, the American performing rights organization that represents more than 300,000 songwriters, composers and music publishers.

The GoDigital Music Group, which encompasses GoDigital, UrbanDigital and E-Klectrik Records is a "next-generation" record label and content distributor. The label group specializes in incubating developing artists through their 24x7x365 global network of retail, distribution, and marketing partners. For established artists and labels, GoDigital provides world-class digital distribution and marketing to complement the artist or label's pre-existing physical distribution and marketing.
