I’ll Bet He’s Wrong About That (continued)

Last September I wrote a post with the same title as this one in which I said:

David’s (David Card) a smart guy and generally right about stuff, but I’ll bet him a years worth of music on eMusic
that within 24 months at least one of the four majors will do a deal
with some service that sells music in non DRM’d mp3 format.

Well David didn’t take me up on that bet and it appears that he was smart to leave it alone. The New York Times is reporting from the Midem music trade fair that at least one major is close to releasing all of its music digitally in unprotected mp3 format.

That’s terrific news and I am so happy to hear it.
