This won't work for everyone. But it's still a good example of how a post-DRM world works. "Corey was a high school teacher. Playing gigs on the weekend. Marty Winsch (now his manager) was booking a venue. Was there any way to make headway, for Corey to support his wife and two kids playing music? Absolutely said Marty. But first they had to release the equity in Marty's recordings. They had to make them free on his site. To everybody.... Which they did. In 2007, Corey Smith grossed $1.7 million. This year, not even half a decade into Marty's management of the act, Corey's going to gross $4.2 million." Via Techdirt.
