Rumors: EMI may sell (more) unprotected MP3s
Now EMI is looking to take the next step. An unnamed Forbes source says that EMI has solicited proposals from their retailers to tell the company how they would offer DRM-free MP3s. The retailers would offer large advances in exchange for the right to sell MP3s. EMI will weigh whether to continue forward with the scheme based on the size of the offers, and the Forbes source said a decision from EMI about going forward with the scheme could be made quickly.
Are the dams breaking? Or is this just more hopeful rumors in the wake of Steve Job's recent open letter? Only time will tell.
