As far as we can tell, Deezer is a french website that lets you stream popular music from a variety of wicked bands. For example, click here to check out Portishead’s album Third, which was only released a month or so ago.
So far, it’s on the up-and-up. Deezer has negotiated with the French version of RIAA and have somehow worked out a deal to stream this content. Record companies seem pissed, so don’t be surprised if this disappears rather fast.
