Qtrax gets Baidu deal for Chinese launch Can ad-supported downloads firm Qtrax make a go of it second time round?

It’s a huge deal for Qtrax, since Baidu is the dominant search engine in China. It could be pretty big for Baidu too though, as the company has taken some heat – and indeed lawsuits – for its copyright-infringing music links in the past. Google already runs its own ad-supported music download service in China.
