Submission + - EMI's entire catalogue available DRM free

rohan972 writes: The Sydney Morning Herald reports: EMI Music has become the first of the big four record companies to break from the pack and make its entire catalogue available as downloads free of copy control measures.

The announcement to offer the unprotected format was made in London overnight by EMI Group CEO Eric Nicoli. He was joined by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, who said his company's market-leading iTunes Store would also carry the new EMI tracks, marking the first time that DRM-free music would be offered to on iTunes.

A bug in the hand is better than one as yet undetected.
