EMI Uveils Plan to Sell Music Without Anticopying SoftwareWSJ:
In a major break with the music industry's longstanding antipiracy strategy, EMI Group PLC announced today that it plans to sell significant amounts of its catalog without anticopying software.Ah well. No Beatles, not today.
However: EMI is going for premium downloads. They will be free from DRM and will offer vastly improved sound quality, something I've been asking for for years. They will come at a premium, which I think I'm OK with, though I'd note that all WMA-based digital stores already offer better quality than iTunes. Some even offer lossless music.Permalink ]
