Nine Inch Nails - 'The Hand That Feeds' GarageBand files released

On April 15th Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails released a single from their new recording as a GarageBand file for fan remixes. The cut is 'The Hand That Feeds' (70MB).
Besides this being a really really cool thing to do that fans should love, it really flys in the face of the recording industry by being brazen enough not only to give away the song to mac users, but to allow them to remix the tune any way they want. A community popped up around this, and is archiving 500 remixes of the song around a contest they are running. They're up to 330 remixes (mine is #287 or here).
I'm looking forward to see who follows NIN's lead, or what the ultimate outcome or fallout from this approach will be. Awesome idea!
