Internet Music

Nine Inch Nails
Category: Music

For the Record, there are two BIG names really into the internet downloading of music. Radiohead and Nine Inch Nails.

I put radiohead first because they were first. They offered their album “In rainbows” on a pay whatever basis, the internet community took this and ran with it. Downloading for as little as the base fee (around $1) all the way up to $300. Which I bought in stores for around $11

This trend was then emulated by trent reznor of Nine Inch Nails.
Selling the 36 track acoustic album Ghosts I-IV for $5. Which I bought online.

Today Trent topped good ol radiohead by offering “Disipline” on his site 100% free.

I have to say that I have been a believer in the idea of free music and free software, if you enjoy doing something, share it, don’t put limits on it, but I also understand that there are people who can’t do what they want and still affort to do it.

I endorse anyone making something for free, and giving it out for free, those who want to pay for a Cd, pay for it! No one is stopping you, I might buy it on Cd just to support the idea of getting it out there and giving the artist a good reason to keep doing it.

Grab it, like it, hate it, whatever. – I like it.
