Journal Potor's Journal: Radiohead to release digital download on honour system

The Times Online writes that Radiohead, having left EMI, is self-releasing its new album on its Web site as a digital download - and leaving the price up to the consumer. The Times does not note that the same album will be for sale in a physical format as well, at a predetermined price - £40 - and with lots of goodies.

Radiohead's bold new move is a challenge to what many consider the moribund strategy of the record labels, and clearly underlies the difference between music per se and the added value of packaging.
