EMI drops DRM

E M IIIII!!!

E M IIIII!!!

Gooodbyyye D RRRRR MMMMMM

Great news that EMI is to drop DRM on tracks bought from the iTunes store; they’re also increasing the bitrate to a sweet 256KBps, thus combating both of the most common complaints about Apple’s music store. Of course, getting what you wanted in the first place doesn’t come cheap and EMI’s tracks will come at a premium charge (99 pence in the UK), but for classical music, where just a few tracks can make a whole album, that represents a pretty nice deal.

More at Gramophone, and all over the place.

Hypebot also worth reading (as ever), and Boing Boing.

  1. Hahahahahaha, great picture and riff on the lyrics; what a great song that is. You could have also, of course, used Anarchy in the UK.

    Those Pistols, seeing the future 30 years ago….🙂
