RIAA, FBI issuing takedown requests for Radiohead's "In Rainbows"

TorrentFreak reports that the RIAA and FBI are sending takedown notices to people sharing Radiohead's "self-released" album "In Rainbows," which was released in MP3 form at the time for whatever fans wanted to pay (though there were some oddly conflicting messages later from the band's management).

Mike at Techdirt writes, "TorrentFreak notes, accurately, that Radiohead did do deals with major labels for distribution of the physical album of In Rainbows, but I was pretty sure they kept the copyrights themselves. Perhaps that's not the case?"

(Full disclosure: the album remains one of my fave of all time. —XJ)
