Magnatune - label of the future?

This is a really interesting label - for remixers in more than one way: As a potential source of remixing materials as well as a destination for distributing one's music. In their own words: "Magnatune is a music/business experiment that has never yet been tried. We're doing our best to make it succeed, but it may not. If we don't make you any money, we think we can get you some exposure, it won't cost you anything, and we won't limit your future options."

And explaining the concept of Open Music: "Open Music is music that is shareable, available in "source code" form, allows derivative works and is free of cost for non-commercial use. It is the concept of "open source" computer software applied to music."

I have no idea if this model can generate meaningful revenue, but it most certainly looks like it can facilitate the creation of great music. But there's a lot that seems right about this. Definitely worth checking out: Magnatune
