TMS has selected Netsize to support the global delivery and European billing of content. Kazaa is the world's most downloaded peer-to-peer software application with over 60 million global users.<br /><br />The content will be available through Kazaa via a search facility, a dedicated ringtone and logo channel and through an intelligent ringtone-matching link that corresponds with the users' music search requests with a matching ringtone. Users can purchase content from more than 90 countries through TMS's WiDE platform, with mobile business and entertainment solutions provider Netsize managing the global delivery of content and European billing via premium rate SMS across 52 mobile operators."<br /><br />Between this and <a href="http://www.skype.com/">Skype</a>, it seems that Kazaa doesn't want to be stuck in the file swapping business any more. ;-)
