Iggy Pop is giving BBC6 Music's annual John Peel lecture on the theme of "Free music in a capitalist society", which seems relevant to this thread.

Haha! I love it. I bet Iggy is a great lecturer. It's been a long time since I read books about him but I believe his parents, Mr and Mrs Osterberg, were highly educated, left wing schoolteachers who elected to live frugal lives on a trailer park with their only child, James, in whom they took pains to inculcate the value of education.
