I'm pretty sure a contract of sale involves two parties, so neither Apple nor U2 can say I own it unless I want to own it and agree to own it. It's free to own. Lots of things are, if you choose to own them.This isn't record breaking or interesting, it's just a stunt from U2 that uses some mechanics that haven't been used in this way before, but still aren't all that interesting. The only thing interesting, or rather entertaining, will be how many people don't even take...
Plenty of other artists have put free albums on "the internet" before, which has a larger user base than iTunes. Just because U2 have a prominent link on iTunes instead of a website doesn't make it particularly notable, just the usual showboating. They won't get 500 million downloads.
It looks alright. Not exactly leagues ahead of the competition, but alright. Not exactly mind blowing, but expecting that was asking for disappointment. I'll wait until I see one to judge it any more. So far, it looks ... just alright.
How many other albums have you had for free My entitlement complex says I can't stand U2, can't we have some free Dre?
Killed by who?
 A hit that loses you close to $200 per unit isn't much of a hit at all, even in Amazon's crazy world.
Being proven wrong doesn't prove willfulness. And "after the fact" predictions doesn't justify a categorical accusation of FUD now.
So-called "artificial lowering of the stock price" for a week certainly isn't lasting damage.And "known to be a willful liar" is plain false. You don't know anything of the sort. You just disagree.
People still say that?
FUD that will be definitively proven or disproven within a week with no lasting damage to anything meaningful is hardly FUD at all. Inciting harassment just because you disagree with an article (based on zero evidence either way) is way more deserving of blow back.  Really low.
