Europe’s Day Of Free Music

Struggling to develop an online strategy, European music producers have decided to offer free music downloads – for a day. “The campaign – Digital Download Day Europe – will allow music fans to download five euros’ (£3.40) worth of music for free from sites that pay royalties. The promotion takes place on 21 March and will be available in France, Germany, Spain, Italy, the UK and The Netherlands. More than 150,000 tracks will be available to download, with a third able to be copied to CD.”
