Monty Python Leads the Way

Showing the RIAA how do to it, the Monty Python team have released all their content to be freely viewed on YouTube. Guess what? Their sales on Amazon have increased over 200 times (23,000 percent).

The music industry will die before it adopts any kind of free content model, but open source has led the way and persuaded other people to try similar models. Lo, it turns out you can make a living giving things away!

So head over the the YouTube Monty Python channel and pick out your favorite sketches, but don't forget to by something.
