I found this interesting article about an artist who decided to shun conventional distribution methods, for a different approach like Radioheads In Rainbows promotion by making making his latest album available for free download. It’s available on BitTorrent on sites like The Pirate Bay, with so-called ‘OiNK replacement’ site, What.cd, providing the album on ‘free leech’ to encourage more downloads.
