Giving away free stuff on the internet is either the best thing ever or the worst from a business standpoint. In this post I’m going to look at the benefits of a price point so low it’s nonexistent for various types of digital media. The following post picks up right where the previous one left off.

The Politics of Free Part 1
Giving away free stuff on the internet is either the best thing ever or the worst from a business standpoint. In the next couple of posts I’m going to look at the good and bad of a price point so low it’s nonexistent for various types of digital media.
