Radiohead Passes the Hat Around

Via New York Times blog The Lede: You decide how much you want to pay (or not) for Radiohead's next album online. Click on the question mark next to the empty price fields in your basket and a message says, "It's up to you." Interesting ramifications for online music sales and distribution. Will they actually make *more* money than if they'd sold it through iTunes? Or as one commenter suggests will everyone decide to take it for free, as with Stephen King's experiment with e-books.
