  1. How do they earn money though? Is it like a dating site where they charge you to find out who’s interested or wants to connect with you? Or, is it free with optional upgrades like LinkedIn…or optional adverts like Facebook? This is the sort of thing I’d like to know before I sign up on stuff like that.

  2. Interesting, but Reverbnation already does this; is huge and mostly free. I guess $600k doesn’t buy an original idea. Just another wannabe trying to copy others. Anyways, I wouldn’t trust uploading my music to a Turkish website with foreign copyright laws.
