Nettwerk, a model for intellectual property in the digital age

Wired has this nice piece, No Suit Required on some innovative approaches to managing artists and intellectual property in the music industry. In my quest to find and support indie artists I did some further reading on the company featured in the article. How refreshing is this?

Litigation is destructive, it must stop .... as per Nettwerk copyrights, we have never sued anybody and all our music is open source to encourage fans to share it with others and help us promote our Artists. As per those Artists we manage on other labels (Majors), we take issue with those labels claiming that litigating our fans is in our interest, as it clearly is not.

This is great stuff! You can shop here: Nettwerk.
