Bruised but not (yet) beaten Internet music company MP3.com said Thursday it has inked an audio/video marketing deal with Warner Music Group.
The first part of the nonexclusive pact allows MP3 to offer on its site songs and musicvideos from various Warner Music artists, including Madonna and Faith Hill, on a promotional basis.
Under the terms of the second agreement, MP3 will help the major label market its wares on the Web, offering such services as hosting for featured artist pages and “email blast” promotions.
Back in June, Warner agreed to license its catalog of songs to MP3 for the company’s My.MP3.com digital music locker service as part of a suit settlement that cost MP3 a reported $20 million. The other four majors — Sony, EMI, Universal and BMG — also licensed their content to the Netco. Suits brought by powerful indies Zomba and TVT are still ongoing.
