Radiohead's 'In Rainbow' Suffers From Illegal Download

August 4, 2008 (9:08 am) GMT
Even though Radiohead have provided fans with affordable download price on their site, their latest LP 'In Rainbow' is still illegally downloaded with a staggering number.

Some of 's fans chose to download their latest album "In Rainbow" from illegal sources rather than from their official website. Commenting on the news, a researcher from P2P monitor Big Champagne and U.K.'s MCPS-PRS royalty collector said, "[The number] far exceeds what outsiders have reported as the estimated download total from the bands official website, regardless of whether those downloaders paid or not."

The band have actually released a policy called as honesty box which allows their fans to pay the album as much as they thought the album was worth. However, the staggering number of illegal download with a total of 2.3 million copies since it has been released in October 2007, has proven that the scheme set by the band failed to stop people from continuing their pirate act.

The band haven't told public about how much money they made from offering the download at their website. They also refuse to answer question on how many people have downloaded the album from their site.
