Musical Suicide for All

Tuesday, May 1st, 2007

About a year ago, in March 2006, Bob Ostertag decided to put his music online for free, under a creative commons non-commercial license. This is not particularly unusual in itself – however, the fact that he has 28 years worth of recorded material on his site means he is providing a large portfolio to the public, without any immediate or direct prospect of monetising such work. This is precisely what his article “The Professional Suicide of a Recording Musician” is referring to.
