Our goal is to provide people with a convenient and secure way to evaluate and purchase music on P2P networks. We are proud to enable music fans to legally download music and to be promoting new and alternative artists along the way”.
INgrooves’ CEO, Robb McDaniels, added, “we are impressed by the overall business model and novel approach of PeerReach as a legal P2P file downloading service.
