Colombia is the site of two new song giveaways - one by Internet service provider ETB, and one by the publisher of El Tiempo newspaper.

According to Aliado Digital, ETB is promoting its new broadband service and download store with 30 free songs during the first three months of service - although the catalog is only from Sony right now. That differs from a Danish ISP, which recently unveiled an unlimited music download service tied to its broadband connection.

Also in Colombia, the El Tiempo newspaper and others from its publishing company are running video banner ads on their Web sites promoting the rock band Superlitio's new single, "El Cartucho." A click of the ad leads to a free seven-song download from the band's new album from the Web site vive.in. Superlitio also promoted its new album with download codes in the print version of ADN, another newspaper published by El Tiempo.
