Universal announced it will start selling DRM-free music through a variety of outlets, but iTunes won't be one of them. [New York Times]
@ligerxx: More like the reverse. You go ahead and try to sell songs online without the worlds #1 online music distributor, Universal. Notice that they won't pull their catalog from iTunes. Go ahead Universal, I dare you.
I think is Universal's "comeback" to Apple refusing to pay the $5 per iPod for absolutely no reason. Universal is a sad, sad little company. They refuse to support Blu-ray even though its the most popular format. They are trying to leave iTunes even though that is the most popular online distribution channel. Nice hissy fit.
