shows what they know. hell if the labels got a % of this, I'm sure they'd be happy, as well as the artist.

NIN made over $2 for each transaction, not bad. especially cause he would make less that with a major label.

I wonder how this type of system plays out with an unsigned (and never signed) underground act.
