Legitmix, a Brooklyn-based company, thinks it’s found a legal way for remix artists to sell their wares. The company spent a million dollars building and developing an algorithm that has allowed it to create an online store where remix artists can sell their remixes and retain 70% of the total sale.
The algorithm works by not allowing people to download remixes of songs they don’t already own. If you try to download a remix for a song that isn’t on your hard drive, it’ll redirect you to iTunes to buy the song in question. Most songs cost $2.29 and another dollar for the remix.
