Bloggers hosting Radiohead's 2007 album 'In Rainbows' have been targeted by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) and International Federation of the Phonographic Industry (IFPI).

The Oxford band released the album through a 'pay what you like' scheme, meaning fans could pay as little as they liked for a digital copy of it. However, the RIAA and IFPI have issued takedown pleas to Google, asking it to disable bloggers' accounts for offering the songs for free, reports Torrentfreak.

In a letter sent to Google and posted on Chillingeffects.org, the RIAA says the recordings "have not been authorised" for free download by their "member companies".

Radiohead have yet to comment on the matter.
