EMI Reneges, Says DRM Here To Stay

If you listen closely, you can hear all the goodwill that EMI accrued in recent days by considering dropping DRM go down the drain. Yup, the smallest of the Big Four music corporations just said that DRM is here to stay. Recently, EMI had been hinting that it would sell music online without any DRM, which, naturally made us happy. But it looks like the realities of planet Earth set in and we'll be living in an DRM-encumbered world for the being, Jobs' complaints notwithstanding.

Oh, when will the music companies learn? If you guys keep insisting on putting DRM on your files, I'll have to keep finding alternative methods to obtain my music fix.
