EMI + Jobs: What’s Really Going On

Personally, I think Steve Jobs is full of it. In fact, I dare him to live up to the rhetoric in his so-called blog post on DRM-free music.

We’ll see what really happens at 1 p.m. GMT. Any guesses?

UPDATE: EMI’s offering their entire catalog (save for the Beatles) online sans DRM. How will the industry respond?

The kicker, after all, is that EMI is charging 30 cents more for the non-DRM tracks, or as EFF puts it, essentially placing a 30 percent surcharge on buying back your rights. Why not just by the DRM-free CD?
