Microsoft to give incentive for using Zune-to-Zune sharing?

Posted on Thursday, Nov 30 2006 @ 17:37 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
It looks like Microsoft is going to reward people for using the Zune-to-Zune filesharing option of the Zune digital audio player:
Christina Calio, also of Microsoft’s Zune project, mentioned rewarding Zune-to-Zune sharing with Marketplace points at the Music Summit as well. Her comment appears at about 54:40 in this recording. It's worth noting here as well that Allard and Calio's statements differ greatly from Microsoft's "official" position on sharing commissions as explained by Zune Insider Cesar Menendez, who dismissed initial rumors about incented super distribution by saying Microsoft has "... no plans to pay people for Zune-to-Zune sharing."
