Good for Gateway

A while back Gateway ran a TV spot supporting consumers' rights with respect to digital music. It's a great TV ad with a great hip-hop cover of Gordon Lightfoot's Sundown, by Elwood. Check it out (RealMedia). The ad says "Like this song? Download it for free from gateway.com." Unfortunately, it's nowhere to be found on the website (though it's easy to find elsewhere on the web). Kudos to Gateway for taking the stand. Too bad the campaign seems to have died a quiet death.
