Did Sony BMG really know what they got themselves into with this one? The label is releasing Pearl Jam's latest video as a free, Creative Commons-licensed download. But only until the 24th, and apparently also only for US-based viewers - which might be a Google Video downside, and not Sony BMG's fault. Anyway, they actually plan to sell the video starting next Thursday. Now what's preventing the Internet Archive from hosting it for free? Or people swapping it on P2P networks, which in this case would be completely legal?
