'Tis the Gift to Be for Sale?

Today's mail (e-mail that is) brought an announcement that Sony is offering a recording of John Williams' "Air and Simple Gifts" (as played at the inauguration, or at the "inaugauration" as it was misspelled in the press release) for sale on iTunes.

Am I the only person bothered by this (and I'm not talking about the misspelling)?

I sent a message back to the Sony representative doing the publicity for this "offer" suggesting that the proceeds from the sale of this recording go to the National Endowment for the Arts.

We'll see if I get a reply.
