Ananova reports that Coca Cola is to go into the online music business. Next month it will launch mycokemusic.com with 250,000 tracks from 8,500 artists, though details of who the performers will be have not been released. This comes hot on the heels of the news last week that Coke is to sponsor the UK singles and album charts. Said the Coca-Cola marketing director:

“Consumers have told us that downloading music is confusing and complicated and what they want is an easy, simple-to-use downloadable service from a trusted brand.”

The IPKat is interested to see whether a reputation and trust that has been built up in a brand and a trade mark used on soft drinks will transfer successfully to something as hi-tech as music downloads. He can foresee though that the image that has been built up around Coke the drink could lead quite nicely to a range of music that will reinforce that image and that will be attractive to those who approve of the image of Coke the drink.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
