Free Music: The Choice of a New Generation

We mentioned the other day that Pepsi is airing an ad on the Superbowl telecast that features teens sued by the RIAA for file sharing in order to promote their two-month offer of up to 100 million free – and legal – downloads from Apple’s iTunes. The RIAA said it was ahppy with the ad, but I think anything that promotes free music – legal or otherwise – merely reinforces the notion that music should be free.

Either way, here is the ad. You be the judge.

UPDATE
See all the Superbowl ads online here beginning Sunday, Feb. 1. Ads from ’02 and ’03 are still available.
