    Giving away an album online isn't the way most artists end up with gold records. But it worked out that way for Wilco.

    After being dropped from Reprise Records in 2001 over creative conflicts surrounding Yankee Hotel Foxtrot, the Chicago-based band committed what some thought would be suicide -- they streamed it online for free.

    It'd be pretty funny though if they got sued for uploading their own music.

    WN: What if the efforts to stop unauthorized music file sharing are successful? How would that change culture?

    Tweedy: If they succeed, it will damage the culture and industry they say they're trying to save.

    What if there was a movement to shut down libraries because book publishers and authors were up in arms over the idea that people are reading books for free? It would send a message that books are only for the elite who can afford them.

    Stop trying to treat music like it's a tennis shoe, something to be branded. If the music industry wants to save money, they should take a look at some of their six-figure executive expense accounts. All those lawsuits can't be cheap, either.
    Damn right. Its nice to hear true artitsts speak some sense for a change.
