death of DRM

hot damn – EMI announced w/ Steve Jobs that the entire EMI catalog will be available  for DRM-free download at $1.29/song – a $0.30 markup over the traditional DRM-laden $0.99/song.  you can also upgrade from DRM-laden to non-DRM for an additional $0.30.  all songs will be available in DRM’ed versions as well.  this comes just months after Jobs called for the demise of DRM – which Bill Gates also did, but nobody really pays attention to his take since Microsoft’s music products are inconsequential; we know Jobs was pushing behind the scenes, Gates probably not so much.
