Songbeat Gets A Second Life As Excellent Music App With Uncertain Future

I liked Songbeat the minute I started using it. First released as a desktop app for Seeqpod back in January 2008, the upgraded version that was introduced nearly 12 months after that not only made searching for music extremely simple but also offered an excellent way to download tracks to your computer. And like Seeqpod , it was also an easy way to obtain copyrighted material from the many places on the Web where that kind of stuff can be found. Evidently, the music industry took notice and sought to shut the service down in court. Warner Music was the first to file a lawsuit against the startup behind Songbeat and ultimately forced the fledgling company to take the service offline , but not without them promising to return with something bigger and bolder in the future. Yesterday, the guys behind Songbeat came out with a revived version of the desktop client, which has been renamed Songbeat 360 . Music lovers are going to love it. The music industry, however, is not. TechCrunch50 Conference 2009 : September 14-15, 2009, San Francisco
