Nine Inch Nails has just released the first volume of their new album â€œGhostsâ€ on BitTorrent sites as a free download. The band encourages its fans to share the album with friends, post it on websites and play it on podcasts
â€œGhostsâ€ is released under a non-commercial Creative Commons license and can be shared freely, something their fans werenâ€™t allowed to do when the band was held back by a record label. In the release notes the band writes: â€œNow that weâ€™re no longer constrained by a record label, weâ€™ve decided to personally upload Ghosts I, the first of the four volumes, to various torrent sites, because we believe BitTorrent is a revolutionary digital distribution method, and we believe in finding ways to utilize new technologies instead of fighting them.â€ (Via Neowin).
