Radiohead's Manager: File Sharing Should Be Legal; It's Great For Music
from the so-there-you-go dept
This probably isn’t much of a surprise given Radiohead’s well-publicized experiment with letting fans “pay what you want” for its last album, but the band’s manager has now said that he thinks file sharing should be legal (sent in by Ruby), noting:
“We believe file-sharing by peer-to-peer should be legalised. The sharing of music where it is not for profit is a great thing for culture and music.”
Compare that to, say, Paul McGuinness, the manager of U2, who has been going on and on about how pretty much everyone other than the music industry (i.e., users, ISPs, Apple, software companies) is to blame for file sharing, and they should all be kicked off the internet if they don’t pay up.
