I read that U2 made something like $700 million from their "U2 360" tour alone, I'm pretty sure they'll survive if people pirate their music

What if he acts so care-free about profit so he gets sympathy and guilts people into buying his music?

It could be said that the typical band actually loses money by fussing so much about piracy.

This guy will get more fans because he is making his music accessible to more people. Those people will pay for concerts, albums, and merchandise in the future.
If he had been a dick about making sure everyone paid for his music, no one would know who he is and he would have no chance of getting anywhere.

The increased publicity and exposure from making your music available like this is far more valuable than a few record sales.
#103 to #98 - anon (03/15/2012) [-]
wow, wow,,.. you don't know whit about music business :)
Anyways he probably can get enough from donations alone, if he keeps producing.
To become rich he probably would have to make some purchaseable extras - like free music, but if you want some extra songs, pay. People wouldn't mind.
User avatar #137 to #103 - durkadurka (03/15/2012) [-]
Easily accessible music = more exposure = more fans = more people to buy albums, merchandise, concert tickets, etc.

Stringent copyright policy/ demanding you to pay for every single thing = less people listen to the music = less exposure = smaller amount of fans = less money (in the long run).

No knowledge of the music industry is required just some understanding about human nature and economics.

Also, a theoretical artist wouldn't have to offer everything for free, just enough to spread to many people.
#120 to #98 - giveobamaquarters (03/15/2012) [-]
exactly. and sometimes it's not even about money. i'm in a band right now, and i would love for people to be searching for us and downloading our music., paying for it or not. and you honestly don't need to sell your music to make money. we've never sold a single song, but with we've made enough to record 4 just by selling bracelets
#105 to #98 - pallypal (03/15/2012) [-]
Nine Inch Nails have been doing this forever, along with several other bands.

They've left USB drives in places at their concerts with full albums on there, as well as a hidden code byte to download an unreleased song. Almost all of their concerts are recorded live and posted up on the internet for free. Hell, I think the first torrent of Year Zero was Trent.

When I first saw this I thought the guy looked like Syd Barret from Pink Floyd. Then I saw his last name and I shat bricks of how close they were. Pic Related.

Just get behind a proxy server while torrenting things

Or else you may get fined (rare, but it can amount to hundreds of dollars)
