The Boston Globe has an article about how illegal downloading actually increased sales for a Boston-based band. Jim Infantino of Jim’s Big Ego says that giving music away under a Creative Commons license hasn’t hurt their sales. According to the article, their latest release “They’re Everywhere” has already dramatically outsold any of their previous releases. Their license allows the public to copy, distribute, perform, and sample from the songs as long as it isn’t for commercial purposes, the author is given credit, and any derivative works are distributed under an identical license.
