Qtrax redeems itself with a June 18th relaunch date for Universal and EMI downloads

Digital Music

After the initial controversy surrounding Qtrax, they’ve managed to improve upon their image and actually become a fairly legitimate download service. Having signed up their second major record label, they’ve now announced that June 18th will be the relaunch date for the beta version of the service.

Currently you’d be hard pressed to actually find a song that’s worth downloading on Qtrax – if you can find any that actually will download – however in just five days songs from Universal Music Group and EMI will be available to download, although it’s still unclear whether EMI songs will be legal to download outside the US and Canada. Qtrax has signed papers with Sony BMG and Warner/Chappell as well, however the plans are still being sorted out reportedly.
