The largest Czech music publisher has come up with a way to deal with pirating of its music through the internet. It will basically distribute music for free and will only charge people a fee if they want to download something.
The company will therefore open up its archives to the public online, so the music will be free as long as you have an internet connection. The publisher hopes people will be encouraged to buy pieces and songs that they like so they can listen to them also offline.
The company wants in this way to cover the losses from pirate practices, reports Czech daily Hospodárské noviny.
