When asked about the impact of filesharing on musicians, Coyne said, “We have benefitted from this idea that if you don't have very much money, but you still want to hear our music, we would - rightly or wrongly - encourage people just to download it and have it.
"For our music and for our fans, I think this has been of great benefit to us. We feel that if you hear our music and understand us a little bit more, you'll really love what we do. That means you may buy our records, buy our T-shirts or come to our concerts. One avenue is taken away, but it opens up other ones.”

Just trying to be nice ... This is a vinyl only release and Wayne himself is alright with sharing Lips music because he knows that if you like them and you know you do / will you will buy stuff from them, go to the shows, spread the word.
Not to mention the link is on the official and unofficial Flaming Lips website forums.

I agree, It'll be nice when they decide to re-open the archives and throw out some heavy hitting oldies like Jesus Shootin' Heroin and Halloween On The Barbary Coast. I'll always love them but indeed the setlist's are getting a bit worn on the soles.
