Here is another interesting step in the evolution of online music sales. This company creates CDs on demand: no inventory, relatively local shipping from centers around the world. I haven’t heard of a single artist I could find on the first few pages, but what do I know?
- PEACEWORK MUSIC NET UNDERMINES PIRACY THROUGH PRICING
Peacework Music Net takes a bold initiative in CD pricing with the New Deal,
an active effort to win back music fans who have turned to illegal downloads
and counterfeit recordings.
Our unique CD on demand model allows us to reduce prices radically below
those of a traditional label, distributor or retailer. We are pleased to
offer customers CDs for as little as $0.99c, while maintaining a 50% royalty
to our distributed labels and artists.
We thank our labels and artists for their support and perception in
addressing these issues. They will also benefit from using our worldwide,
cost-free platform to release affordable CD singles, archive recordings,
back catalog, or financially marginal material.
CD singles and EPs start at just $0.99c, albums from $2.49.
We hope other distributors and labels will follow our lead in undermining
piracy through pricing.
99c CD, anyone?
And this is important to know:
- Hi-Fi . . . Always!
All our CDs are full resolution audio. We never compress our sound files and every song you buy is as the artist intended it to be.
Our CDs are packaged using the exact artwork of the original album in our custom LP style cardboard sleeves. There is no generic packaging at the Music Net and it is important for us to supply our customers with the very best print quality available.
Because we manufacture our CDs on demand, artists and labels benefit from our truly international distribution without the manufacturing, shipping and warehousing costs that would otherwise prevent them from reaching a worldwide audience.
We distribute all over the world. Customers can pay in their local currency, without costly foreign exchange fees.
