Video of Mike Masnick’s keynote presentation at the Leadership Music Digital Summit (25 March 09):
Masnick talks about how “free music” business models can allow musicians to connect with fans and give them reasons to pay the band in other ways. Using NIN as a case study, Masnick also gives examples of how “free” models have worked for less-established artists. Note the mention of Creative Commons around 6:45.
