LOS ANGELES -- Mobile music pioneer Chaoticom and EMI Music have formed a licensing agreement to make some 200,000 tracks from EMI's catalog available for wireless distribution via certain Chaoticom carrier partners.

The EMI deal is limited to European wireless operators Eurotel, Orange, Pannon and Telenor, but Chaoticom said the two will look to expand the agreement into new areas of Europe going forward. EMI is the fourth major record label to partner with Chaoticom for mobile music downloads.

Chaoticom aggregates music content deals and operates an online music store for its carrier partners. The company has additional relationships with carriers in Singapore.

To date, the ability to purchase and download digital music files via wireless networks and phones has been limited to the European and Asian markets. Japanese wireless operator KDDI recently sold 1 million full-song downloads during the first 48 days after launching its "Chaku-Uta Full" music download service in November.
