In the midst of an ongoing battle between internet broadcasters and representatives of the recording industry, Egisca Corp. has launched a new website (http://www.nexusradio.com) offering music enthusiasts a free and legal alternative to services like iTunes and Rhapsody. The new Nexus Radio software takes a different approach to music downloading by allowing users to record radio broadcasts directly from the internet. Unlike peer-to-peer software like Morpheus and LimeWire, Nexus Radio eliminates the need for users to illegally share music on virus-riddled P2P networks.
Music lovers can download the free Nexus Radio player and begin recording their favorite tunes within minutes. The software extracts individual song data from internet broadcasts and saves the music directly to the user's hard-drive as standard MP3 files. The recording process is easy and it only takes one click of a button. Files recorded with Nexus Radio are commercial free and contain full ID3 tag information.
Recording an unlimited amount of music for free would be enough for the average music aficionado, but Nexus Radio takes it a step further by allowing users to transfer recorded files to any multi-media device that supports MP3 files, including Apple's iPhone and iPod
Thousands of broadcasters worldwide are beginning to embrace the new service, while a handful of broadcasters are enraged and claiming that Nexus Radio promotes piracy and copyright infringement. A number of outspoken representatives of the industry have even suggested that Nexus Radio is nothing more than a cleverly disguised Napster and the software should be banned. The developers of Nexus Radio insist "recording a public broadcast for personal use is perfectly legal and does not violate any copyright laws".
Only time will tell how much impact Nexus Radio will have on the music industry and how people obtain new music. As the debate on the legality and ethics of using Nexus Radio rages on, users of the software continue to fill their multi-media devices with free content provided by the service.
