Some Data on In Rainbows

Came across some interesting figures on Mashable yesterday regarding Radiohead's release of In Rainbows . A couple things jump out at me, first that 62% of all downloads paid nothing for the album. That seems high to me. Second, that the U.S. actually had a higher percentage of paying downloaders which suggests that people in the rest of the world a) feel more strongly about getting their music for free and b) feel like music should be less expensive. Note the more than $3 difference in average price. No official word yet on how many times the album has been downloaded but even at an average of $2.26 per, it's a nice profit.
