Funny I Mentioned That

I wrote the other day about getting an ebook copy of a work whenever you buy the print copy and that this could also apply to CDs and MP3s.  Lo and behold, I saw this article today: How Download Cards Connect Physical Music to its Digital Future:

Enter download cards. The foreign slips of paper and plastic started showing up all over record stores at the beginning of 2007, each scrap entitling the owner to a full MP3 download of the record they just bought. Now fans could take the songs on MP3 players without hunting for illegal downloads or buying the album again on iTunes.

I hope that more labels adopt this and that it spreads to other mediums.
