Music – DRM tide turning?

Lots of interesting developments in the music industry, both in digital rights management and in the nature of how music is sold.

An executive from Yahoo! Music tells music industry executives that he won’t sell music with DRM.

Following Radiohead, bands rush to release free, self-distributed music.

Ed Felten points out that pretty soon, we will be able to carry all music ever recorded around with us. At which point, the present economics of the music industry become impossible.
