Blubster initially became notorious with its innovative anonymous offering at the inception of the digital music marketplace a decade ago
Berlin, Germany and Madrid, Spain (PRWEB) October 9, 2008
MP2P Technologies announced today the release of Blubster 3.0 (http://www.blubster.com), the latest version of the company's flagship P2P file sharing software. The release comes on the heels of a recently filed lawsuit (http://opinion.latimes.com/bitplayer/2008/06/so-1999-music-c.html) by the major record label companies against Pablo Soto and MP2P, and in light of a significant Spanish court ruling in favor of P2P* (filed in Madrid Court for Commercial Matters # 2807910001898).
Blubster 3.0 represents the company's most ambitious offering to date, and uniquely situates the company for unprecedented growth both by means of better network connections and the addition of all file types, not just music files. Additionally, the new version incorporates social media (Web 2.0) features that bolster discovery of new music and media in an interactive community experience.
"Blubster initially became notorious with its innovative anonymous offering at the inception of the digital music marketplace a decade ago," said Pablo Soto, developer and CEO of MP2P Technologies. "As digital music continues to appreciate widespread consumer adoption, we are releasing Blubster 3.0, which bridges the efficiency of P2P to today's wildly popular social media culture. As recording artists increasingly abandon the major label system and adopt new business models, our company takes the side of artists and consumers in ensuring distribution and meaningful discovery of new content."
Many of Blubster's new features stem from popular social media and community driven experiences. Blubster 3.0 builds upon the prior version's popularity and includes the following new features:
- All file types now supported -- Audio, Video, Software, etc., are searchable via category.
- Advanced browsing for better search results through suggestions in the search field, similar to Google's toolbar.
- Tag clouds - promotes discovery of great new content. Contextual tags appear that users click on allowing them to browse further into content on the network.
- Interface improved for better look and feel.
- Enhanced community experience -- ratings and comments.
- Fully featured video and audio player - play as you download.
- Translated into 5 additional languages, including Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese and English.
