Malaysian Rock Band Selling CDs By SMS

from the CDs-too-expensive dept

From textually comes the news that a Malaysian rock band is taking their stand against the high prices of CDs that the recording industry forces them to charge by selling their next album exclusively by premium SMS. Of course, as we pointed out last week, such premium SMS messages are illegal in some countries because they go against "e-money" regulations. Still, it does show that new technologies are letting some musicians get around the traditional channels they've had to deal with in the past.
