Musicbrigade seals licence agreement with Sound Pollution to stream the cream of the Music Videos represented by Sound Pollution over the Web and to offer Music Videos as downloads over mobile 3G networks.

Musicbrigade, Europe's original and biggest music video destination on-line has signed a licence agreement with Sound Pollution on behalf of some of the international independent record labels that Sound Pollution represents in Scandinavia. The deal will see Musicbrigade stream videos over the web and offer as downloads over mobiles from labels such as Nuclear Blast and Sound Pollution, offering the music videos by such rock acts like In Flames, Edguy and many more.

Stockholm based Musicbrigade already has agreements in place with EMI/Virgin, Universal and Zomba as well as the majority of the UK independent labels, through VPL, and can today boast almost 5,000 music videos - easily the largest on-line archive of music videos in Europe. In addition, Musicbrigade has already offered more than 250 music video titles for downloads over mobile 3G network through the operator Hi3G.

Anders Hjelmtorp, Musicbrigade CEO commented: " Music Videos are now coming out of the tube and generating lots of interest and commercial revenues for bands through the Web and over mobile networks. Musicbrigade is already positioned as a leading aggregator and supplier of music videos, either as streams or downloads, both on the web and over mobiles, and with such great rock music video titles that Sound Pollution can offer we will make many rock fans with PC's and mobiles happy out there. Our aim is also to increase the number of subscribers we have to our site thus bringing in more royalty revenues for Sound Pollution and it's labels and artists."

Johan Hargeby, Managing Director of Sound Pollution is also looking forwards to the partnership, saying: "it is excellent that the music videos we at Sound Pollution represents now has a legitimate on-line channel here in Scandinavia through which we can expose our videos and artists to a much wider audience.

Musicbrigade is one of the developments towards the Internet and mobile business currently taking place within Sound Pollution and hopefully Musicbrigade will helps us to make money also through these new channels.
