Universal Music Group International and ad-funded legal P2P service Qtrax today announced a licensing deal covering Europe, Asia/Pacific, South America and Africa. Previously, Universal Music Group had a North American deal with Qtrax in place.

Qtrax monetizes the service by selling sponsorships and advertising displayed during the search and download processes. Additionally, users will have the option to purchase music and related items throughout the Qtrax interface.
