Louis CK web-published special a success





Ankhanu
I was just reading a Venture Beat article outlining the success of comedian Loius CK's self-published web-release comedy special, which has grossed over $500k in 4 days, selling over 110k copies at $5 a piece.

This is pretty impressive. It just goes to show how successful production and distribution via the web can be if producers are willing to take a chance and try new means of offering products to their customers. Louis CK produced the video himself, and has made the content available internatinally without DRM at a very reasonable price... and the result? People bought it. It's utterly crazy to think that when given a reasonable, fair price and not restricting the product use that people would actually put their money towards it, rather than pirating Wink

It's exactly what he was going for. He did an AMA on Reddit not to long ago, seems like a really good guy, I'd love to meet him. According to the AMA, if what you mentioned was considered a success to him then he would continue to release material as a result.
