iTunes to Sell EMI Music Unprotected
In a very brave move, EMI yesterday decided to sell its music on iTunes without copy protection. The over 150,000 tunes can be then played on many musical devices and/or burned to CD. Beginning this May, the tracks, from such artists as Coldplay and Nora Jones, will be available for $1.29, as opposed to the $.99 price for regular iTunes. Purchase an entire downloaded album for the same price as a standard one.
After the Napster hullabaloo, most songs sold online now contain copy protection software. Apple’s Steve Jobs is hoping that other record labels will follow this lead and is counting on 2.5 million total tunes by the end of this year.
