Nine Inch Nails' Trent Reznor sounds off on music pricing and packaging on his blog. He particularly rails against the pricing of the new "Year Zero" album in Australia, where is it selling for the equivalent of almost US$30.

"Shame on you UMG," he writes about his label, Universal Music Group. "No wonder people steal music."

He also is against repackaging singles as a tactic for increasing multiple sales. "Nothing but a consumer rip-off that I've been talked into my whole career. No more."
