So following Sufjan Stevens’ Christmas Box-Set of last year, he is now offering the chance for someone to get their very own Sufjan Stevens’ Christmas song all for themselves to do whatever they wish with it.
“You can hoard it for yourself, sell it to a major soft drink corporation, use it in your daughter’s first Christmas video, or share it for free on your website. No one except Sufjan and you will hear his song, unless you decide otherwise. You get the song and all legal rights to it.” (From http://xmas.asthmatickitty.com/)
How do you get this song all for yourself? Well, you have to write your own Christmas ditty and send it to to his record label and hand the rights of your song over to them. A fair exchange? A Generous Gift? A marketing stunt?
