The Woodstock PDS is the first all in one music application that provides consumers with a breakthrough way to legally and ethically play and lend their digital MP3 music.

NEW YORK, NY - Feb. 10, 2003 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- Woodstock Systems, LLC, the New York- based software development company, announced today the launch of its revolutionary new music software. The Woodstock PDS is the first software combining a full-feature media player with powerful Peer-to-Peer file lending ability. Users of the Woodstock PDS software can easily play digital music, convert their CD's into MP3's, or listen to thousands of the best Internet radio stations. In addition, the Woodstock PDS incorporates a unique, patent pending, file lending method that allows consumers to legally and ethically remotely access and lend their digital media files.

Woodstock's approach dramatically differs from the Napster and Kazaa like forms of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) software. Those products are purposely anonymous in nature, promote open file copying and have come under aggressive attack from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). Woodstock's alternative promotes the concept of P2P networks among groups of friends, family, and co-workers. In addition, the Woodstock PDS uses a method of file lending versus file copying. This method "lends" access to a file to a user, while at the same time restricting others from accessing that file. The patent-pending "lending" system neither requires nor permits copying of the file. Thus the original file never leaves the possession or control of the user serving the content. To read more about our approach to file lending, go to:

Woodstock's software reinvents the personal website and takes it to a new level, turning any PC running Windows into a Personal Digital Server (PDS). The software automatically organizes and securely publishes a users' digital media to the web. This enables a user to easily access files stored on his or her PC while at work or traveling. The remote access capability may also be securely shared with friends, allowing them to access selected files on the PC running the Woodstock software. This means that users can now easily access and lend their documents, music, photos, home videos and more.

The Woodstock PDS is a breakthrough in the way people play and lend their digital music. According to Woodstock Systems' CEO and co-founder Jim Hoffman, "The Woodstock PDS was designed by music fans for music fans, unlike current media players from Microsoft, Real Networks or MusicMatch, all of which focus on their own corporate agendas. It fulfills the promise of digital media for the consumer while respecting the rights of the artists." To date, over 20,000 beta testers have been using Woodstock PDS in limited release. Response has been overwhelming, with fans' quotes ranging from "brilliant" and "simply great" to "love it" and "incredible". The interface is intuitive and fun, with easy, clear access to key features. To read more user feed back go to:

The program runs on Windows 98SE and all later versions of Windows and is currently available in two versions. The standard version is free and includes an MP3 and CD Player, Internet Radio, and Music Buddy P2P file lending. The Pro version also includes CD Ripping and Burning along with other enhanced features. Both products can be downloaded at
