The Weed Files Announces its Free Artist Area

With the launch of its Artist Area featuring unlimited uploads and free lifetime hosting, The Weed Files provides virtually costless do-it-yourself online music distribution.

Sainte-Foy, Quebec (PRWEB) October 20, 2005 -- With the launch of its Artist Area featuring unlimited uploads and free lifetime hosting, The Weed Files provides virtually costless do-it-yourself online music distribution.

Artists and labels are invited to sign up for a free account at artists.weed-files.com where they'll be able to create artist pages, upload Weed files and promotional material such as photos and banners, and select featured and podsafe files.

Downloadable at no cost, Weed files can be played 3 times for free and shared legally. Once bought, the files can be played at will, burned to CD, and transferred to a portable player. The artists get 50% on every sale of their files, and don't need to be signed to a label or even have a full album produced to get started. The listeners who redistribute their files are rewarded with up to 20% of the sales price.

"For music fans, Weed files are a great way to actively support the artists they like. For the artists, it's an opportunity to get the most of already existing networks of contacts and the seemingly unlimited connectivity of the Internet," said Christopher Stewart, owner of The Weed Files. "For podcasters, music bloggers, and P2P users, Weed files have the potential to turn hobbies into economically profitable activities. It really is a win-win solution for everybody involved."

To date, close to 90,000 titles have been "Weedified" including music from such diverse artists as Tom Waits, Count Basie, The Presidents of The United States of America, Roger Joseph Manning Jr., Abby Travis, Kelly Clarkson, and countless others.

About The Weed Files:
Sainte-Foy-based independent content provider and distributor The Weed Files devotes its activities to the thriving of the Weed community.

Weed is a service of Shared Media Licensing, Inc., a group of musicians and software developers based in Seattle, Washington. Weed encourages file-sharing and makes payments to musicians while at the same time rewarding file-traders who respect artists' rights.
