Free, from the big labels

Well my post from a couple of days ago should have had a couple more links to free music downloads, in particular this one, as BGG noted:

Big Acts Follow Radiohead’s Lead: Let Their Music Go Free

Rock group Radiohead has started a trend. Nine Inch Nails announced it will release its upcoming album online and ask fans to pay what they want for it – instead of charging a set fee. Other major recording artists Oasis and Jamiroquai are also considering following Radiohead’s lead.

These bands are stealing a page from Radiohead’s playbook. Last week Radioahead announced it would be releasing its new album online, bypassing its label, and ask fans to set a price they wanted to pay. As of this morning Radiohead’s album In Rainbows is available for download via the band’s Website.

Now, I just can’t wait to hear what the IP maximalists like Chris Castle and the IPCentral gang have to say about this.
