Prince's Album Up for Online Sale Despite Free Offer to Fight Internet Piracy


Prince


The singer might already be ruing his decision to give away '20Ten' as hundreds of copies of the album have gone on sale on various websites, attracting bids of more than $20.

Prince may regret his decision to give away his new album for free with British newspapers - entrepreneurial readers are selling copies online for more than $20. The "Purple Rain" hitmaker struck a deal with the U.K.'s Daily Mirror and Daily Record to hand out his new disc "20Ten" with copies of the newspapers on Saturday, July 10.

He insisted it was the right move as it would circumvent internet piracy and would cause him "no stress". But the singer might already be ruing his decision - hundreds of copies of the CD have gone onsale on various websites, attracting bids of more than $20.

One star who won't be bidding on the record is Sir Elton John - the Daily Mirror reports he ordered five copies of the paper to be sent to his home by courier on Saturday to ensure he got hold of the album.

    If Prince used traditional means to initially distribute his album, there would be no demand for it. As a result people would not sell the CD, distributed to limited regions, online.
