The Week: Media News - MoS in Prince giveaway

The Mail on Sunday will be giving away the new Prince album, Planet Earth, as a free covermount on 15 July, despite outrage from the music industry. The paper has plans to dramatically increase its print run for the issue on which the ten-track CD appears, but would not disclose how much the deal had cost. The Entertainment Retailers Association said the giveaway "beggars belief", and record industry executives have slammed the idea as "madness".
