This is well overdue http://www.wired.co.uk/news/archive/2014-11/18/bittorrent
Thom Yorke the Radiohead frontman released his second solo album Tomorrow's Modern Boxes as a paid-for BitTorrent Bundle in September, and now the file-sharing company has opened the floodgates for any artist to release paid content, using the platform as a legitimate distribution mechanism.
The move was announced alongside the launch of the album F10rida through the service, by American electro artist and DJ Diplo -- better known to some as Major Lazer. BitTorrent Inc's new approach opens paygate applications to all artists. Musicians or publishers who have already released content through the Bundle system can retroactively request payment options be added to their projects, while new publishers can request the feature in advance of launching their content.
Reading into the details a tad it seems that the artist is going to get a full 90% of the revenues from such an approach instead of that same amount going into the pockets of the recording industry who also strong arm an artists copyrights away from them until they "recoup", something few do as the accounting is less than transparent and full of contractual items that favour their rights over those of the actual creative talents, we all know who we want to have our money given a choice, now we have one.
