Louis C.K. Live at the Beacon Theater outtake



Bought it for $5 at, gonna watch it later. He's doing a great thing, producing and selling directly for a low price, like Radiohead did, bypassing the DRM and corporate crap production companies will make artists do, so if you like it and can, support this!


...12 hours later, we had over 50,000 purchases and had earned $250,000, breaking even [...] As of Today, we've sold over 110,000 copies for a total of over $500,000. Minus some money for PayPal charges etc, I have a profit around $200,000 (after taxes $75.58). This is less than I would have been paid by a large company to simply perform the show and let them sell it to you, but they would have charged you about $20 for the video. They would have given you an encrypted and regionally restricted video of limited value, and they would have owned your private information for their own use. They would have withheld international availability indefinitely. This way, you only paid $5, you can use the video any way you want [...]

I really hope people keep buying it a lot, so I can have shitloads of money, but at this point I think we can safely say that the experiment really worked. If anybody stole it, it wasn't many of you. Pretty much everybody bought it.
