What’s the true monetary value of music? It’s a debate that’s raged for years now, and will no doubt continue for the foreseeable future, especially as Radiohead declares war against Spotify, Pink Floyd against Pandora, and acts such as Jay Z and Lady Gaga invent new ways to distribute their music, leaving Billboard scratching their heads. Music innovator and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, of course, has an opinion, having released his 2008 album, The Slip, for free online. He’s been catching some slack for his decision to release the band’s new album, Hesitation Marks, on a major label, Columbia, to which he previously replied, “I never signed up to say, ‘hey, I’m the spokesperson for that sort of thing.’”
