Suddenly, music labels seem to be getting an idea of what people want, with Sony BMG’s boss talking up an online music subscription service which could be DRM-free.
According to Rolf Schmidt-Holtz, the service would be unlimited access for a flat rate fee – most interestingly, offering all the label’s output for ‘all digital players, including Apple’s iPod’ and you ‘would own them even after the subscription expired.’
Sounds like a winner to me, especially with a quoted monthly fee of between six and eight Euros. More on this as it develops.
