I Will Pay Money For This

Monday, October 01, 2007 | 4:32 pm

I haven't paid full price for a CD in years, choosing to cherry pick songs from friends or online stores. Mainly, I have a large enough library to keep me busy most of the time, and find the RIAA's lobbying, incessant scare mongering and desire to charge me money even when I hum a tune abhorrent.

But, as a devout Radiohead lover, I will pay very close to full price for their upcoming album In Rainbows, and it's innovative distribution and pricing method. As I see it, I am not only getting my money's worth for a great band who I know will get a better share of my cash, but I am also donating to a fund that will hopefully promote the accelerated decrepitude of the record label cartels and their lobbying arm, the RIAA.
