There’s nothing more boring than DRM-free music. Except maybe DRM’d music. But anyway, EMI says their push into unprotected files has yielded sales that are, according to Ars Technica …”good.” Wohoo! Digital sales are up for Pink Floyd (Dark Side of the Moon), Smashing Pumpkins and Coldplay.
OK, maybe there is something more boring than either DRM-free music files and DRM’d music files: EMI’s music. Still remains to be seen when other labels will follow EMI out into the more open air of the marketplace.
