As if providing affordable computers for millions of children wasn't enough, the OLPC team is working with Freeculture.org to give them free music as well. The new endeavor, the Free Music Project, is going to "collect and record" music for children, which will be distrubted for free to kids along with the OLPC laptop itself.
Looking at this through the lens of our RIAA Boycott month, we can just imagine how our favorite organization would handle this news. Instead of giving away free music to kids who wouldn't even be able to afford buying it in the first place, the RIAA would probably (and may even still) find a way to crap all over the project.
