This Employment Agreement, dated as of April 1, 2003, (this
"Agreement"), is by and between Mike Dougherty (the "Executive") and Loudeye
Corp., a Delaware corporation (the "Company" or "Loudeye").

                                   WITNESSETH:

         WHEREAS, the Company wishes to obtain the future services of the
Executive for the Company; and

         WHEREAS, the Executive is willing, upon the terms and conditions herein
set forth, to provide services hereunder; and

         WHEREAS, defined terms not defined herein shall have the respective
meanings set forth on Schedule 1 attached hereto;

         NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises and covenants
contained here, and intending to be legally bound hereby, the parties hereto
agree as follows:

         1. Nature of Employment

         The Company hereby employs Executive and Executive agrees to accept
such employment, as Vice President of Business Development of the Company.

         2. Extent of Employment

         The Executive shall perform his obligations hereunder faithfully and to
the best of his ability under the direction of the CEO of the Company. The
Executive shall devote all of his business time, energy and skill as may be
reasonably necessary for the performance of his duties, responsibilities and
obligations hereunder (except for vacation periods and reasonable periods of
illness or other incapacity), consistent with norms in similar positions.
Nothing contained herein shall require the Executive to follow any directive or
to perform any act which would violate any laws, ordinances, regulations or
rules of any governmental, regulatory or administrative body, agent or
authority, any court or judicial authority, or any public, private or industry
regulatory authority (collectively, the "Regulations").

         3. Compensation During the Term of Employment, the Company shall pay
compensation to the Executive as follows:

         (a)      Base Salary As base compensation for his services hereunder,
consistent with the Company's regular payroll practices, an annual base salary
of $150,000 (the "Base Salary"). The Board of Directors of the Company (the
"Board of Directors") shall annually, and in its sole discretion, determine
whether the Base Salary should be increased and, if so, the amount of such
increase. In no event shall Executive's then current Base Salary be decreased.

<PAGE>

         (b) Performance Bonus. The Executive shall be eligible to receive a
             bonus of up to a maximum of One Hundred Percent (100%) of the
             Executive's Base Salary (the "Target Bonus Amount"). The Target
             Bonus Amount shall be subdivided into four separate performance
             specific targeted bonus amounts which shall be awarded based upon
             four separate performance factors ("Performance Factors") as set
             forth on Schedule 3 hereto. With the Executive's consent, Schedule
             3 hereto may be amended or modified to reflect such other
             performance criteria as the Board of Directors may determine from
             time to time. The bonus will be deemed earned upon the first to
             occur of (i) the end of the applicable period, and (ii) the day
             immediately preceding the date of consummation of a Change of
             Control, pro rated for the quarter in which the Change of Control
             occurs. The amount of the earned Target Bonus Amount, if any, shall
             be determined by the Board of Directors based upon the Company's
             results for the applicable period. Payment of the bonus shall be
             made five (5) business days following the first to occur of (i) the
             date of filing of the Company's Form 10-Q or Form 10-K for the
             applicable period, or (ii) the last date, without any extensions,
             that the Company must file its Form 10-Q or Form 10-K for the
             applicable period without violating and SEC or NASDAQ rule or
             regulation, in each case relating to achievement of the Performance
             Factors. Payment of the bonus is conditioned upon the Executive
             being employed by the Company during the relevant performance
             period, with certain exceptions discussed in Schedule 2. In
             addition to the foregoing, Executive shall have the right to a
             One-Time Special Bonus as set forth below.

         (c) One Time Special Bonus. In addition to the foregoing, Executive
             shall be entitled to a bonus equal to thirty percent 20% of
             executive's total incentive compensation (a "One Time Special
             Bonus") upon the first to occur of: (a) the closing prices per
             share of Loudeye common stock as quoted on NASDAQ Small Cap
             multiplied by the total number of common shares outstanding equals
             a market capitalization equal to or greater than Twenty Million
             Dollars ($20,000,000) for any Thirty (30) consecutive trading day
             period, or (b) upon the consummation of a Change of Control,
             provided that the valuation of the total equity of the Company in
             connection with the Change of Control is to or greater than Twenty
             Million Dollars ($20,000,000); provided, however, that the One Time
             Special Bonus payable in connection with a Change of Control shall
             be paid in the same consideration as that consideration (including
             securities) paid to security holders of Loudeye in connection with
             the Change of Control. In the event that Executive is terminated
             without Cause or resigns with Good Reason within Six (6) months of
             a Change of Control, and Executive did not otherwise receive a One
             Time Special Bonus, Executive shall be entitled to the One Time
             Special Bonus.

         (d) Stock Option. During the employment period, the Executive shall
             participate in the Executive share option plan of Loudeye and shall
             have the opportunity to purchase shares in accordance with its
             rules at a level commensurate with Executive's position, all such
             grants being subject to the approval of the Board of Directors of
             Loudeye. Subject to approval, the Executive will receive an award
             effective on the date established by the Board of Directors, in
             accordance with the schedule set forth below, of options to
             purchase, to the extent available, incentive stock option (ISO)
             shares of Loudeye, and to the extent that ISO's are not available,
             non-qualified options with an exercise price based on the closing
             price for Loudeye shares on April 1, 2003.

                                                                               2

             Vesting will accelerate upon the first to occur of (i) a Change of
             Control, or (ii) the adoption by the Board of Directors of the
             Company of a plan of liquidation or dissolution of Loudeye.

         (f) Compensation on sale of company or assets. Executive shall be
             entitled to a bonus or bonuses ("Sale Bonus") equal to one half
             percent (0.5%) of the total Incremental Value (as defined below)
             upon consummation of a Change of Control. "Incremental Value" for
             purposes hereof shall mean the difference between (x) the aggregate
             sum of cash, value or other consideration related to a transaction
             described in clause (i) of the definition of Change of Control or
             the aggregate consideration paid or payable by or for the benefit

             Executive is terminated without Cause or resigns with Good Reason
             within Six (6) months of a Transaction, and Executive did not
             otherwise receive a Sale Bonus, Executive shall be entitled to the

opportunity to have special knowledge of the Company and of its affiliates and
subsidiaries (the "Company Group") and their Confidential Information (as such

individuals employed by or affiliated with the Company and that interference in
these relationships would cause irreparable injury to the Company. In

officer, employee, joint venturer, investor, lessor, agent, representative or
other participant, in any business which competes with the Company, provided,
however, that Executive may in one or a series of transactions, own, invest or
acquire an interest in up to five percent (5%) of the capital stock of another

Executive from earning a living with an entity that does not compete with the
Company.

                                                                               5

         The Executive hereby warrants and represents to the Company that
Executive has carefully reviewed this Agreement and has consulted with such
advisors as Executive considers appropriate in connection with this Agreement,
and is not subject to any covenants, agreements or restrictions, including
without limitation any covenants, agreements or restrictions arising out of
Executive's prior employment which would be breached or violated by Executive's
execution of this Agreement or by Executive's performance of his duties
hereunder.

         15.      Company's Obligation: Taxes

         In connection with a Change of Control, Loudeye will cause to be
maintained for a period of not less than three years from the date of the
consummation of the transaction constituting a Change of Control directors' and
officers' insurance and indemnification policies (including employment practices
liability insurance) to the extent that they provide coverage for events
occurring prior to the effective date (the "Effective Date") of the Change of
Control (the "D&O Insurance") for Executive's service as an officer and director
of Loudeye prior to the Effective Date; provided, however, that Loudeye may, in
lieu of maintaining or causing to be maintained such D&O Insurance as provided
above, cause coverage to be provided under any policy maintained for the benefit
of Loudeye so long as the terms thereof are not less advantageous to Executive
than the existing D&O Insurance. The Executive agrees and acknowledges that the
obligations owed to Executive under this Agreement are solely the obligation of
the Company, and that none of the Company's members, stockholders, directors,
officers, or lenders will have any obligations or liabilities in respect of this
Agreement and the subject matter hereof. Any amounts payable to the Executive
pursuant to this Agreement shall be subject to withholding and any other
applicable taxes.

         16.      Severability

                                                                               7

<PAGE>

         Whenever possible, each provision of this Agreement will be interpreted
in such manner as to be effective and valid under applicable law, but if any
provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in
any respect under any applicable law or rule in any jurisdiction, such
invalidity, illegality or unenforceability will not affect any other provision
or any other jurisdiction, but this Agreement will be reformed, construed and
enforced in such jurisdiction as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable
provision had never been contained herein. If any court determines that any
provision of this Agreement is unenforceable and therefore acts to reduce the
scope or duration of such provision, the provision in its reduced form shall
then be enforceable.

         17.      Breach; Waiver of Breach: Specific Performance

         If either party breaches its obligations in connection with this
Agreement, the non-breaching party shall be entitled to pursue all remedies
available at law or in equity for such breach. The waiver by the Company or
Executive of a breach of any provision of this Agreement by the other party
shall not operate or be construed as a waiver of any other breach of such other
party. Each of the parties (and any third party beneficiaries) to this Agreement
will be entitled to enforce its rights under any provision of this Agreement and
to exercise all other rights existing in its favor. The parties hereto agree and
acknowledge that the Company would be irreparably injured by a violation of
Sections 8 through 11 of this Agreement, that the provisions of such sections
are reasonable and that the Company could not adequately be compensated in
monetary damages, in light of the sensitivity of the non-public information of
the Company to which the Executive will be exposed and that the Company may
apply to any court of law or equity of competent jurisdiction for specific
performance and/or injunctive relief, including temporary restraining orders,
preliminary injunctions and permanent injunctions in order to enforce or prevent
any violations of the provisions of such sections of this Agreement.

         18.      Assignment: Third Parties

         Neither the Executive nor the Company may assign, transfer, pledge,
hypothecate, encumber or otherwise dispose of this Agreement or any of his or
its respective rights or obligations hereunder, without the prior written
consent of the other. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company may, in its
sole discretion and without the requirement of notice to or consent of
Executive, assign this Agreement in the event of the sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of the Company.

         19.      Amendment: Entire Agreement

writing agreed to by the parties hereto. This Agreement constitutes the entire
Agreement between the parties concerning the subject matter hereof and, except

the parties relating to the subject matter hereof. The enforceability of this
Agreement shall not cease or otherwise be adversely affected by the termination
of the Executive's employment with the Company. The Executive and the Company
agree that the language used in this Agreement is the language chosen by the
parties to express their mutual intent, and that no rule of strict construction
is to be applied against any party hereto.

to Executive by Loudeye, which specifically identifies the manner in which
Loudeye believes that the Executive has not substantially performed Executive's
duties, and Executive's failure within 30 days to cure such insubordination or
failure to perform.

         "Change of Control" means the occurrence of any of the following: (i)

prior to the date of this Agreement.

         "Good Reason" shall mean: (i) any substantial material diminution of
the Executive's authority, duties or responsibilities (ii) the knowing and
willful failure of Loudeye to make any payments provided under Subsections 3(a)

relocation without the Executive's consent of the Executive's principal work
location more than 50 miles from the former Loudeye work location where the

Executive shall have provided written notice to Loudeye within 60 calendar days
after the event that the Executive believes gives rise to the Executive's right
to terminate employment for Good Reason, describing in reasonable detail the
facts that provide the basis for such belief, and Loudeye shall have thirty (30)
days from the date of such notice to cure any such diminution, failure or
relocation.

         "Notice of Termination" Any termination of the Executive's employment
by Loudeye or by the Executive during the Term of Employment (other than

written "Notice of Termination" to the other party hereto in accordance with
Section 13.

         "Operational Breakeven" shall mean EBITDA or EBIT, as allocated

Termination) or the Executive's last day of active employment, whichever date is
later.

                                                                              12

                                   SCHEDULE 2

                              Termination Benefits

         a) Termination by Loudeye Without Cause. In the event Loudeye
            terminates Executive's employment hereunder without Cause, Loudeye
            shall provide the Executive with six (6) months' severance,
            inclusive of Executive's then current Base Salary, earned and unpaid
            incentive compensation, bonuses and benefits, to be paid within
            sixty (60) days from the date of termination and, as to any Bonus
            payment, on the date it would have been made had the Executive
            remained in active status (collectively, the "Severance Payments").
            Executive will cooperate, if requested by the Company, in the
            training and support Executive's replacement, if any. Failure of
            Executive to comply with this requirement may result in Termination
            for Cause.

         b) Termination by Loudeye For Cause. Loudeye may terminate Executive's
            employment immediately for "Cause", in which case Executive shall
            receive only Executive's Base Salary and normal benefits through the
            last day of Executive's active employment. For purposes of this
            Agreement, the term "Cause" shall be defined in Schedule 1.

         c) Termination By Executive Due to Voluntary Resignation. The Executive
            may terminate Executive's employment hereunder by voluntarily
            resigning Executive's employment and providing Loudeye with sixty
            (60) days prior notice of such resignation. In such event, Executive
            shall continue to receive Base Salary, earned incentive compensation
            and benefits during the period in which Executive remains in active
            employment or Loudeye may, in its sole discretion, terminate the
            employment at any time within such sixty (60) day period with no
            further obligation.

         d) Termination By Executive for Good Reason. The Executive shall have
            the right to resign for Good Reason and any such resignation shall
            be deemed a Termination by Loudeye without Cause under Section (a).

         e) Termination By Death or Disability. Executive's employment shall
            terminate if the Executive is unable to perform the duties of
            Executive's position due to death or disability. In such case, the
            Executive's heirs, beneficiaries, successors, or assigns shall not
            be entitled to any of the compensation or benefits to which
            Executive is entitled under this Agreement, except: (a) with respect
            to any Base Salary earned prior to the Executive's death or
            incapacity; (b) to the extent specifically provided in this
            Employment Agreement; (c) to the extent required by law; or (d) to
            the extent such benefit plans or policies under which Executive is
            covered provide a benefit to the Executive's heirs, beneficiaries,
            successors, or assigns. For purposes of this Agreement, the term
            "Disability" shall mean that, as a result of the Executive's
            incapacity due to physical or mental illness, the Executive shall
            have been unable to substantially perform Executive's duties
            hereunder for a period of 6 consecutive months or 180 days within
            any 270 day period.

                                                                              13

                                   SCHEDULE 3

                               Performance Factors

         1.       Reduction of Lease Liabilities: Twenty Five Percent (25%) of
                  the Target Bonus Amount shall be earned at such time as the
                  Company's (inclusive of its subsidiaries) total lease
                  obligation or monthly lease expense ("Real Estate Expense") is
                  reduced by not less than 70% compared with the Real Estate
                  Expense on February 28, 2003 or, if the Company determines not
                  to sell its Vidipax division pursuant to the plan approved by
                  the Board and to occupy the space located at 111 W. 19th
                  Street, not less than 60% compared with the Real Estate
                  Expense on February 28, 2003. This bonus will be paid in full
                  to Executive upon execution of definitive agreements.

         2.       Operational Breakeven: Eighteen and Three Quarters Percent
                  (18.75%) of the Target Bonus Amount shall be earned at such
                  time as the Company achieves EBITDA for the applicable
                  quarter, and Six and One Quarter (6.25%) of the Target Bonus
                  Amount shall be earned at such time as the Company achieves
                  EBIT for the applicable quarter.

         3.       Cash Usage Breakeven: Twenty Five Percent (25%) of the Target
                  Bonus Amount shall be earned upon the Company having
                  unrestricted cash and short-term investments at the end of a
                  quarter that are equal to or greater than unrestricted cash
                  and short-term investments of the prior quarter

         4.       Revenue: Twenty Five Percent (25%) of the Target Bonus Amount
                  shall be earned upon delivering results in which revenue
                  exceeds the Board of Directors' approved revenue plan,
                  (Schedule 4) by not less than Twenty Five Percent (25%) over
                  the immediately preceding quarter, with such revenue measured
                  on a pro forma basis with adjustments for any acquisitions or
                  divestitures. This shall be pro rated annually and paid on a
                  quarterly basis. By way of example only, if the Company's
                  revenue exceeds the Board of Directors' approved revenue plan
                  by not less than Twenty Five Percent (25%) over the
                  immediately preceding quarter in three of four quarters,
                  Executive would be entitled to a bonus of 18.75% of Base
                  Salary based upon this Performance Factor and would be paid
                  6.25% following each quarter in which the Performance Factor
                  is achieved.

                                                                              14
