Wireless MP3 Sharing with Push!Music

Push!Music is a new concept by the Viktoria Institute in Gothenburg, Sweden. The software automatically shares music files with nearby users in the wireless network. It monitors the listening history of the user, and develops awareness about what kind of new music he might like. As the result, music songs are able to find their way themselves to the users with the similar taste who want them. The concept envisions Wi-Fi-enabled music players that automatically establish a peer-to-peer connection, enabling people to either “browse” the music collections of others and take a copy of whatever they like.

Imagine that you have a mobile device that can store and play back music files, for example a mobile phone with an MP3 player. As you encounter various people, the devices you are carrying connect to each other wirelessly and media agents from the other nearby devices check the status of your media collection. Based on what you have been listening to in the past and which files you already own, new music might spontaneously and autonomously “jump” from another device to yours (and vice versa). Later, when you listen to your songs, your Push!Music player also plays some newly obtained tunes that you had not heard before.”

The concept seems to be very interesting & effictive but it could be another Nightmare for RIAA.
