In a day when record companies are taking massive strides to change policies and practices with the advances of digital technology, today’s release of B.o.B.’s new video seems like a step backwards.

The video, in which B.o.B. collaborated with Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams, was exclusively released to iTunes for the nominal price of $1.99, but is that even too expensive relative to the free videos being released daily on Vevo.com and MTV.com almost daily?

Beyond people not wanting to pay the two bucks to download the video, limiting it to iTunes results in poor quality versions of the video being ripped posted to YouTube where the majority of the public will end up seeing it anyways. The video’s director can’t be happy about that.

What do you think? Would you/did you pay to see B.o.B.’s “Airplanes” video? If you would, the link for the high quality downloadable video is here.

UPDATE: Hey look, we found a decent quality version of the video to embed, courtesy of JustJared! (above)
