Remix as promotional tool

Trent Reznor has recently released a song from the upcoming NIN album "With Teeth" packaged together in GarageBand format. (Download from here)

Quoting from Cool Hunting: "What I'm giving you in this file is the actual multi-track audio session for 'the hand that feeds' in GarageBand format. This is the entire thing bounced over from the actual Pro Tools session we recorded it into. I imported and converted the tracks into AppleLoop format so the size would be reasonable and the tempo flexible."

There does not appear to be any mention of what form of license is associated with this download - it would be great if a Creative Commons license was applied to this source material.

I'm also curious to learn if such a promotion will drive Mac sales - I could see young musicians wanting to get their hands dirty and plunking down some cash for a Mac Mini.

I wonder when we'll start to see video producers publishing their iMovie or Final Cut Pro source... In any event, another step towards the Remix Culture.
