War Child Music gives downloads a good name

With the wealth of negative press around illegal downloads, it's been interesting to see some positive news coverage for once. A series of artists, including Badly Drawn Boy and Travis, have donated tracks to War Child Music which can be bought individually at 99p or as part of a monthly unlimited subscription. It remains to be seen whether this will gather sufficient critical mass to be worth a monthly subscription, but it's an innovative approach to fundraising which may well catch on.
