    RIM Working on BBM Music?


    Hot off the "rumor oven", we have heard that Research In Motion is working on a music social media app called "BBM Music" that, while it will be an individual app, will allow for heavy integration with BlackBerry Messenger. BBM Music will allow user to share music and playlists with one another over BBM and will allow users to download the music directly onto their device over the air. How sick is that? I don't know about you but that sounds super cool to me. Those are the only details revealed so far. Hopefully we'll see this as a beta app soon in the BZ.

    What do you think about this latest rumor?

    I was using a music file sharing program a few years that was awesome!!!! How it would work is that you would have your music stored on your pc and when you were on line and someone was looking for a certain song, a list of users would come up and they would select the file from someone and download it to their pc. As the owner of the song, you did not have to do anything if you were online, the requesting user could download the song from you automatically. The program had safety parameters in place that prevented anyone accessing other areas of your HD.

    Now it has been a few years and I'm sure this old, dusty brain has forgotten a few items that allowed it to work, but it was really great and since we were sharing files, we could get around the law of buying songs without giving the artist a share of the $$$

    The problem is the other people not owning the song and downloading it.

    This BBM Music thing is no different than torrents or Limewire or Napster or any of the other plethora of music sharing deals that we have seen over the last decade IMO. I have a feeling the RIAA is going to see it the same way and will throw a fit. Maybe RIM is hoping they will be so busy fighting the Google, Apple and Amazon cloud services that this will slide under RIAA's radar.
