Scour embarks on new business strategy

Author: JT Smith

The Standard has a story on Scour, a file-trading service like Napster, and its efforts to reposition itself.
"The Michael Ovitz-backed company had to
lay off most of its staff last month after a
copyright infringement lawsuit scared off
investors. Now, Scour has inked a deal
with United Devices, a Softbank-funded
distributed-computing startup, which will
pay Scour to help distribute United
Devices' free software to the 4 million
people who trade media files with Scour
Exchange."
