TELECOMWORLDWIRE-(C) 1994-9 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

Online music distributor songs.com and record label Big Heavy World have decided to participate in Cranberry Grove, an Internet digital music pilot hosted by Computacenter's e-business division iGroup. The pilot, which is open to artists, music labels and distributors, will test InterTrust Technologies Corp's digital rights management technology and payment and fulfilment mechanisms from NatWest's digital commerce service Magex with the object to create an end-to-end system for the sale, consumption and distribution of digital music. In related news, the Mechanical-Copyright Protection Society (MCPS), representing composers, songwriters and music publishers, has agreed a blanket licence for Cranberry Grove under which the pilot will have access to all musical repertoire of MCPS' members for one year. In return, MCPS will be provided with the trial's results.
