Bands to buy Kazaa search results

A new pay-for-placement program has started on the popular Kazaa file-swapping network, allowing bands to buy their way into search results on the file-trading system. A company called Cornerband.com is offering musicians the ability to have their songs show up when file-swappers search for generic terms such as "hip-hop" or "electronica."

Cornerband is working through Altnet, a company whose technology is distributed as part of the Kazaa peer-to-peer system. Altnet allows other companies that hope to use the Kazaa network as a way to distribute authorized, copy-protected content to launch similar keyword associations.
