"A few months ago, Trent Reznor (frontman of the band Nine Inch Nails), was in Australia doing an interview when he commented on the outrageous prices of CDs there. Apparently now his label, Universal Media Group is angry at him for having said that. During a concert last night, he told fans, '...Has anyone seen the price come down? Okay, well, you know what that means — STEAL IT. Steal away. Steal and steal and steal some more and give it to all your friends and keep on stealin'. Because one way or another these mother****ers will get it through their head that they're ripping people off and that's not right.'"

There was a discussion on MemeStreams about Reznor's distaste for record prices a few months ago..

What will be more interesting is how he will distribute material following this tour. His contract with UMG is up, and I doubt he'll resign after this little escapade. I would bet that he's already got something up his sleeve to be so cavalier.
