Everyone apparently knows the piracy consequences on the audiovisual industry. But they maybe do not know the real cost of this action. According to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI), every 20 songs available on the Internet, 19 were illegally downloaded, affecting the same producers and artists worldwide.
That is why artists and creators are looking forward new ways of selling their art and making money at the same time. The indie rock band Kaiser Chiefs had a great idea to fight against piracy and you can participate with them through their webpage kaiserchiefs.com
They thought an unique way to sell their new album named “The future is medieval” and the users are the major figures in this online distribution.
First of all, you must select 10 of the 20 available songs in the “create album” section. You can preview all songs and you also can change your selection anytime you want. Afterwards you will design the cover of your brand new customized album. There are several ways to make an unique cover, so try and try again until you get the most original one.
The final step is to pay for your new album, only 7.50 pounds (around US$ 12), and enjoy of your own music selection. In addition to this, if a user buys another user’s selection, this one will earn a dollar for this transaction.
So it’s time to make your choice, and maybe you would get some reward too.
All is up to you!
