I just published an in-depth analysis of Trent Reznor's latest experimental business model. Cutting through all the gushing, the model has one critical flaw. As progressive and wonderful as it is, it's still fundamentally based on a broken consumer-cost business model. Despite the album being legal to redistribute for free, Trent's still asking $5 to get it from him. This contradictory policy is explored in depth in my article, as are the effects of the discrepancy.
