The Distributed Computing Industry Association (DCIA), on behalf of its more than 30 member companies, announced that it is presenting President George W. Bush with a symbolic and historic gift in honor of his re-inauguration today. The significance of this offering is that it represents a turning point in the commercial development of the emerging distributed computing industry. The gift is the first major album to be licensed for paid distribution via the peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing channel. DCIA member companies INTENT MediaWorks and Sovereign Artists are participating in this P2P promotion of the self-titled album, Petra Haden and Bill Frisell, an eclectic mix of new and arranged standards of jazz and rock music.

Featuring the vocal harmonies of singer-songwriter-violinist Petra Haden -- the daughter of jazz legend Charlie Haden -- and the guitar playing of Bill Frisell, the album contains 12 tracks. The artists and composers on the album include Elliot Smith, Foo Fighters, Coldplay, George Gershwin, Tom Waits, Stevie Wonder, Henry Mancini, as well as original songs from the duo. The last track on the CD, "Throughout," an original song by Bill Frisell, will be available free on P2P, with all other tracks available for purchase at $0.89 each.

"While the retail value of this gift may only be $9.79, its significance as a turning point in the licensing of mainstream music content for P2P distribution is enormously valuable to the entertainment and technology sectors," said DCIA CEO Marty Lafferty. "With this promotion, DCIA member companies are proving that mainstream artists can be fairly compensated and consumers can enjoy the benefits of P2P file sharing."
