Louis C.K.: No Crap

Artists like Radiohead, with their digitally distributed and variably priced album “In Rainbows,” have gotten the gist of direct distribution (or disintermediation for you nerds1) for a few years now. Aside from the movie Bubble—not a financial success from what I can tell—I can’t think of many disruptive digital distribution events that will be as big as this one. Louis C. K. is letting you buy his latest comedy special directly from him, “No DRM, no regional restrictions, no crap.” More awesome words have never existed in a legal statement. I hope this crushes. And if you’re like me and don’t really think a movie ticket is worth nine bucks, then do like me and buy this twice!

  1. I say “nerds” lovingly. :)
