I’m not sure, but I think that’s a play on Che’s last name.
Basically, they use advertising to pay for the mp3 songs you would otherwise just download.
I’m interested in your opinions. Do you think this could be a way to balance free music without “stealing” money from the bands? Do you think this will work?
4/9 Edit: A couple of things
I forgot to put this in. How do YOU think music lovers can keep listening to music for free without “breaking the law?” The argument that sharing music is illegal or immoral is moot, because it’s simply not going away. In light of this, how do we compensate for it?
Professor Vanacker presented a study that said the music industry was losing a generous portion of money to illegal file sharing. There are numerous other studies that come to the same conclusion, as well as the opposite. What should be taken away from this is that these studies on the effects of illegal file sharing on the record industry revenue range from not statistically differentiable from zero to substantial. Obviously, those against it will cite the substantial studies, and those for it will cite the low impact studies.
