Yahoo Music chief Dave Goldberg raised eyebrows Thursday at the Music 2.0 conference in Los Angeles with a proposal rarely heard from executives at large digital music services: Record labels should try selling music online without copy protection.
A Yahoo spokeswoman said that Goldberg was “basically trying to move the industry forward,” and wanted to prompt industry-wide discussion “about what the consumer experience is.”
Wow…run your business based on providing a good consumer exprience…BRILLIANT! Too bad the majors probably won’t see the logic in that. Actually, I guess it isn’t too bad, because that leaves more room for the rest of us.
