If someone did an In Rainbows-style "pay (or *take* as much money as you want from us to buy this album)
Which artist do you think would be made the most bankrupt?
I'm sure some with a few million in the bank would take that risk, as it wouldn't be much skin off their nose. Like, say, Bon Jovi. Or Nickelback. They could put a limit on how much you could "steal" and they'd also be seen as strange, quirky philanthropists. I guess it all depends on how much you'd like to steal from such people in real life..
