EMI in talks to sell unprotected MP3s
Looks like my prediction that this year we will see mainstream music (which means music from one of the four major labels) sold without DRM may just surprise even me and actually happen.
According to the Wall Street Journal (and also mentioned in USA Today), EMI is in talks to sell unprotected MP3s. While EMI is not yet confirming this, we all know that if it got printed in the Journal then it has to have some solid roots in reality.
Over a month ago when I made my prediction, it was to some degree a wish. I was convinced that music without DRM was the future, but already in 2007? This was the wishful part or maybe not...
