Online social network and music store Indie911 announced that it will make a DRM-free version of Andrew Shapter and Joel Rasmussen's "Before the Music Dies" available for download, the service's first feature length film. Through a partnership with the film's distributor B-Side Entertainment, online audiences will have two options for purchasing the music documentary, free of copy-protection technology, from the film's hoooka player--a free, portable digital locker powered by indie911 that allows users to share, promote, sell and play their personal media favorites, via the Web. Narrated by Forest Whitaker with interviews and performances by Erykah Badu, Eric Clapton, Dave Matthews and more, the film is a troubling look at what drives today's music industry. [Brian Brooks]
