The Business of FREE

We get much of our music on line, for free; but it has devastated the music business. We've seen classified ads on Craigslist undermine the economics of newspapers and journalism. With You Tube, free is jeopardizing the very fabric of the movie and television business. How can the free business model of the Internet coexist with our desire for new, better and quality content? This discussion is at the center of a new book by Chris Anderson, editor in chief of Wired Magazine and the author of the international bestseller The Long Tail. Now in his new book Free: The Future of a Radical Price he compels us to think in new ways, as Internet users and consumers.
