According to Mr. Ganesh Kumar Bangah, Chief Executive Officer of MOL: "The Qtrax value proposition is their vast music and related content library that is killer content in today's fast moving internet industry." He added: "The launch of Qtrax in the region is well timed as the public realizes that peer-to-peer music download services while popular, are illegal. The launch of Qtrax will enable Asian consumers to listen to music free and legally while helping compensate artists for their hard work. The availability of such a service is long overdue in the region. MOL Media will direct traffic from our sites as well as our affiliate sites to further promote Qtrax and we are confident that local advertisers will come onboard.".

Mr. Allan Klepfisz, President and CEO of Qtrax said: "We expect to be announcing partnerships throughout Asia in the period prior to launch and we are thrilled to begin with MOL. Ganesh has created an impressive, cutting-edge organization with MOL via their various businesses including those of their associate, the Berjaya Corporation Group of companies. They will be able to add considerable value in terms of traffic and advertisers. Additionally, their global payment system will prove very useful in monetization for us moving forward.".

Mr. Jay Berman, Co-Chair of the Qtrax Advisory Board, commented: "Having spent many years as Chairman and CEO of the RIAA and subsequently the IFPI, in promoting respect for music copyright, I'm pleased that Qtrax will spearhead, together with substantial regional partners, a vastly superior alternative to pirate sites- something that has been sorely lacking."

Mr. Blake Indursky, EVP of Qtrax observed: "I have been involved in several of the negotiations that Qtrax has undertaken in the region and cannot help feel that history is in the making."
