EMI is trying to break the digital music world wide open.
At a press conference in London today, the EMI Group will soon be selling digital music through Apple's iTunes Store they say has better sound quality and no digital rights management restrictions whatsoever.
The company’s entire digital music catalog will be available in premium DRM-free form at $1.29 per song via iTunes in May….however, it will not include the Beatles albums many have been hoping for.
Despite rumors that a deal had been made, EMI and Fab Four ain’t makin’ no digi-union yet.
So the question becomes, how soon before the artists start suing EMI for seeling their music with no DRM? I mean, you can’t make a move in the digi music world without getting sued, right? And EMI ain’t gonna sue themselves…..
Hey, maybe we the public should launch a class-action suit against EMI for denying us the Beatles catalogue!
