'Alf a farthin' is better than none as noted in this CNET article which reports that Bowie's licensing of his catalogue to MP3.com will result in payment of one third of a cent for every stream of a master recording and a further quarter of a cent for each publishing copyright held. As the article notes, Bowie is one of a handful of major artists who owns the copyright to some of his master recordings and thus is not covered by previous settlements which MP3.com has worked out with major record labels.

It was incredibly influential in terms of some of the characters I've created. I didn't particularly like A Clockwork Orange, but I knew it was an important film.
