A whole bunch of you have been sending in the recent Toothpaste for Dinner cartoon about how the RIAA/major record labels would "adopt the Radiohead model" if they ever really thought about it:
While it is amusing, there's a lot of truth behind that comic (which is part of what makes it funny). We keep seeing people misleadingly claim that if you talk about "free" in one context, you must mean everything should be free. That kind of thinking comes out of the labels all too often, so you could totally see them saying that "well, if pay what you want is supposed to work for buying music, why not for paying people..."
