Guvera.com Download Free Legal Music - Just saw the tv ad for this

Make a profile at Guvera.com to access free music downloads.

As part of the profile building process after signup you get asked a bunch of questions about you and the things you like. The point of this is to make sure you get targeted by the right advertisers but also to acquire credits.
The more details you put in your profile, the more credits you get.


Once you’re ready you search for an artist, you get routed to a branded page to stream or download songs.


Downloading/streaming uses up the aforementioned credits.
Heres the advertisment with Rihanna as there main drawing card.



I wonder how many artists they are going to get. Personaly I dont see it taking off but I have been wrong.

Lives for gear
 

So it's basically ad and survey funded? A couple sites I know have tried this so far - We7.com, spiralfrog.com. Those ones crashed and burned, as it was not possible for them to pull enough ad revenue to adequately compensate musicians/companies. Spiral Frog shut down completely, and We7 I now see is doing ad-supported streaming.

Maybe this will succeed where they failed. I don't know.

my question is always the same - how much are the paying the labels and publishers per stream, and how many streams does the #1 song of the week get?

that's pretty much all you need to know.
