Jupitermedia said today that it has purchased eStockMusic.com, a library of royalty free stock music, samples and sound effects. Terms of the deal were not released.

The purchase adds a micropayment music business to Jupiterimage’s micropayment offerings of royalty free digital images and footage on Stockexpert.com.

eStockMusic’s library is searchable and allows customers to listen to tracks before they make a purchase. Tracks sell for $1.00 for a minute and are available for direct download.

If you produce music you can sell your music by registering on the site. After registering you can start uploading your music tracks.

"We are very excited to launch one of the first micropayment music businesses in the world," stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of Jupitermedia Corporation. "eStockMusic.com joins our RoyaltyFreeMusic.com, StudioCutz.com and Blue Fuse Music properties. We now offer royalty-free digital music to fit every budget and need," added Meckler.

    This was a lukewarm investment. The online digital media market is very unstable. The glaring issue is that people do not want to pay for music that they can find for free, and free download networks outman paid venues 50:1.

    What incentives are there for a 13 year old to use his Moms account information to purchase music, when he can download the same music from his friend for nothing?

    Either the format needs to change, along with copyright laws for music, or the website needs to offer a bigger incentive.

    The downfall of the music business and the transition to an online business has been interesting to watch from a legal standpoint.  It has brought the idea that creating laws and enforcing laws are sometimes miles apart.

    I wonder how long eStockMusic will last.  I agree with the first post, either the format needs to change, along with copyright laws for music, or the website needs to offer a bigger incentive.

    I heard theater students talks about this.  So many times they need stock music to perform their scenes and this will become an easy place to go.

    I find it very interested when these kinds of deals happen. I have heard tons about Jupitermedia, but have never heard anything about  estockmusic before.
