Tamago Launches First Peer-to-Peer eCommerce System
October 15, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsSAN FRANCISCO, CA. October 15, 2006– Tamago (www.tamago.us), a San Francisco based company, launched the world’s first peer-to-peer commerce system allowing people to sell every type of digital media directly from their computers to customers all over the world. People who publish music, videos, photos, e-books, etc. earn royalties, while buyers earn commissions for distributing media to others.
“We believe everyone should make money,” said Joel Floyd, CEO of Tamago. When someone buys a song, a picture, or other digital media, Tamago pays the members, whose computers deliver the data, directly to the buyer. This eliminates the need for central server farms. “In Tamago’s new world, customers are not just consumers, but distributors also,” said Gary Feierbach, COO of Tamago.
Tamago was built for both publisher and customer ease of use. When someone publishes their work they set the royalty amount they want to receive for each sale. In turn, buyers automatically become distributors and receive a commission on any media their own computer delivers. Tamago also protects an artists’ name and copyright by preventing it from being re-published and stolen, while giving customers freedom to use the material for any personal use.
“This system will bring out the artist in everyone,” Joel enthuses. “We charge nothing to publish and it takes less than 5 minutes. All the barriers are gone so everything from the popular to the very esoteric can find an audience.”
Tamago requires a PC running Windows 2000 or XP or an Intel based Apple Computer running Parallels Desktop or Boot Camp from Apple Computer.
