In another example of struggling major music labels and Internet services finding common ground, Sony Music Entertainment has agreed to make its back catalog of songs available on eMusic, one of the largest music retailers on the Web.
The company plans to announce on Monday that it will add all Sony Music tracks that are more than two years old, including material from artists like Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and Billy Joel.
The article also mention that EMusic's prices are going to rise on this news as well. Great news except for that price-rise. As a long-time subscriber I both applaud and disagree with the deal. To me it appears that the music bigs (Sony, Time-Warner etc.) are looking to raise the prices not only for them but for independent record labels as well.
