EMI Ditches DRM.

(Kinda sorta… the price is high and the cheaper/lower quality version still comes with DRM, which doesn’t make much sense)

I’d just like to point out that it took almost 8 years for the music industry (well, one label anyway) to finally offer their product in a way that competes with the original Napster. Better late than never, I guess.

Though maybe I’m being unfairly cynical – this is a threshold moment for the music industry and digital media in general. Maybe the 21st century can finally start now, who knows?
