Long Tail author Chris Anderson on Free Music

Ahead of his new book ‘FREE’ the Wired Editor-in-Chief has been doing a lot of blogging and this set of stats are pretty succinct:

How much of Apple’s iPod $4 billion in annual sales should be credited to the libraries of “free” MP3 that created demand for gigabyte storage devices? How much of MySpace’s $65 billion estimated value is due to the free music bands put there? How much of the $2 billion concert business is driven by P2P file sharing?
