As if we needed more confirmation that Microsoft's soon rolling out Zune sharing rewards, here's more news of Microsoft's wheeling and dealing with similar companies like Weedshare. Long story short:

Microsoft signed a patent non-assertion agreement that grants Shared Media Licensing the rights to exploit its patent and any patents related to it without fear of legal repercussions. So if Microsoft should roll out a Zune compensated sharing program based on it, Shared Media Licensing and Weedshare already are in a unique position to leverage it for their own benefit.


This is pretty great news if you work at Weedshare and Shared Media Licensing, but since you don't, it's just confirmation that you'll get Marketplace points for song sharing soon.
