In 2006 I gave my music away. That music had previously existed on CDs and LPs (yes, I began
making music in the days of vinyl and tape). I moved all of it to the Web, downloadable for free. Today, seven years later, I see that giving away music for free is not as easy as I had imagined. In
some ways, it turns out to be impossible. The reasons why this is so say a lot about creativity,
property, and power in a networked world of corporately owned digital commons policed by
netbots and stochastic algorithms.
