Is the "Name Your Price” model catching on?

Posted October 30th, 2007. Filed under Personal

I sure hope so.  Following the reported success of Radiohead’s In Rainbows release and Cliff Richards adopting a similair strategy, news is making it’s way around the blogosphere of music, film, and culture publication PASTE MAGAZINE being next in line to have a go at the “Name Your Price” pricing model.  I’ll bite if only to help prove that this pricing model can work out well for both buyer and seller while cutting out the middle man.

    I read somewhere (I forget where though!) that only between $2 and $3 USD would be enough to defray the costs to Radiohead for the new album; anything above that is icing on the cake.

    I paid $5, and yeah, I’d be happy to see this pricing model take off, since that’s a helluva lot cheaper than buying a CD, when all I’d do with it is rip it anyhow.

    I have to admit though, I’d be happier if they’d release them in a free codec, like OGG Vorbis or FLAC….
