SeeqPod site goes down as CEO claims acquisition talks


Over the weekend, music search engine SeeqPod went down, meaning people couldn’t use it to search for or play songs. There was a knock-on effect, too, as the many streaming music sites that rely on SeeqPod’s API were also hobbled, with their users unable to search for songs. There’s speculation that this is related to the company’s pending lawsuits from major labels, or its recent bankruptcy filing. However, CEO Kasian Franks tells MP3newswire that the site will be back soon, and that it’s in acquisition talks with (as their story describes it) “a large media company that was a competitor to Apple”. RealNetworks? It’ll be fascinating to see how this one plays out…
