Bob Lefsetz of the "The Lefsetz Letter." has written a strongly worded article about EMI's increasing the price of music as part of its inevitable move away from defective by design (DRM infected) files. If you aren't a regular reader of his newsletter, and are interested in the future of music, then you need to be!
EMI deserves to go out of business. As for its lame competitors, they’re so paralyzed that they won’t even make a move. Edgar Bronfman, Jr. wants higher prices WITH the DRM. And Sony BMG is just trying to stay afloat, with an internal war aflame, with the Sony half fighting for its life. And Universal is so arrogant, it somehow believes since it’s got the largest market share with the biggest selling acts, it’s somehow immune. RIDICULOUS!
