Sour Grapes Dept.: Prince CD Giveaway Angers Music Industry

Prince CD Giveaway Angers Music Industry

"The Artist formerly known as Prince should know that with behavior like this he will soon be the Artist Formerly Available in Record Stores," said Paul Quirk, co-chairman of the Entertainment Retailers Association
The story is that Prince is bundling his new CD with a british tabloid, the Mail. The CD and the paper will retail this weekend for $2.80.

Sony BMG UK is not going through with their release plans in Britain.

Seems like Creative Commons licensed digital downloads of Prince are somewhere in the future, no?
