– New Rules for Music Distribution

RoyaltyShare.comRadiohead made a critical move by selling their In Rainbows album at a user defined price. Of course they threw in a somewhat pricier boxset to offset the essentially free Mp3s from the new album—all things considered, it was a gutsy, and modern stunt.

Nevertheless, they raked in a not too shabby 10 million after a week.
