EMI and Apple to remove DRM from most of their music on iTunes Reply #50 – 2007-04-02 20:31:33 Quote from: xequence on 2007-04-02 19:46:56And about the topic, I think DRM free is great. It is a step in the right direction. But I still wouldn't buy lossy files for that much.If their objective is beating piracy, then having lossy files that cost money is not as good as free, possibly lossless music on P2P. The record companies will never give out free music, so the only way to beat piracy is to offer higher quality music.Of course, lossy files that cost money will never be more appealing than "free" music on P2P. However, we're not talking about any music that is offered "free." Piracy is what it is, and blaming it on the cost/quality of the music is really missing the point.As one who was paying between $1-$2 for vinyl singles 30 years ago, $.99-$1.29 per track seems like a good deal, especially when the single was pretty much dead before digital downloads became available.
