A new startup, Pass Along, allows its members to accrue points they can use to buy new music by sharing music they own.The concept is very simple. Pass Along allows users to share music they own buy making play lists with 30 second clips of the songs. These songs can can then be listened to by other Pass Along members. If another member likes the song they are listening to, and decides to purchase it, the person sharing the clip will get points that can be used towards buying their own music.Though online music stores are becoming common, this concept has the ability to leverage instant messaging tools and other peoples collections to act as advertisement. We will have to wait and see how it all works out.
