Music giveaway

"The British recording industry today launches its latest attempt to stem the flood of consumers who are abandoning the legitimate CD market and turning to pirate internet services to download music for free. Rocked by plummeting global sales and the growing realisation that previous anti-piracy efforts have proved woefully inadequate, labels and distributors will try to tempt back customers with an initiative dubbed the "biggest ever official giveaway of digital music". For 5, users will be able to listen to 500 tracks online, download 50 tracks on to their hard disk or burn five tracks on to a CD." (from The Guardian)

Apparently, S Club 7, David Bowie and Britney Spears were the "top pirated artists of last year." Yikes!

It makes sense that Britney would be a top pirated artist, but David Bowie? That speaks really well about the publics tastes in music. David Bowie is musically a genius.
