Apparently someone got a hold of Thom Yorke's collection of tracks related to OK Computer and ransomed them for 150K.

The band apparently said 'F*ck You!' by releasing the tracks anyway, allowing fans to buy them all for only $23 bucks. Apparently they've been on the Web for free for some time as well.

Crazy.

that would have done this.

Could you imagine if someone now had grabbed some DAT's from the 2001 era from Dre? I can't imagine he'd be as cavalier and laid back about the leak as Radiohead.

Dre's entitled to take care of his legacy as he wants but his reaction likely would contrast with Radiohead's quite a bit.
