EMI will sell songs without copy protection on iTunes: Cory Doctorow, 1. Jack Valenti, 0.
Giant record label EMI Music said Monday it plans to sell songs without built-in copy protection on iTunes and other digital music services.
EMI, the label of Norah Jones, Coldplay, Iggy Pop and many other musicians, will sell the “premium” downloads of individual songs for $1.29. That’s 30 cents more than a standard download from iTunes, the music store run by electronics-maker Apple.
