DRM-free music is selling well

Posted on Sunday, June 24 2007 @ 02:01:12 CEST by

Music label EMI reports the the initial results of DRM-free music sales are pretty good.

EMI Senio VP Lauren Berkowitz says: "The initial results of DRM-free music are good," adding that early results from the iTunes Store suggest DRM-free music may increase revenue from both albums and individual songs sold in digital format. Sales of Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon, for instance, have gone up since the DRM-free version of the album became available on iTunes last month.

Other industry sources also indicates album sales on iTunes Plus have increased. Sales of Dark Side of the Moon nearly tripled and other albums are said to be enjoying increased sales, too—sales of Coldplay's A Rush Of Blood To The Head and OK Go's Oh No have jumped 115% and 77%, respectively.

But on the other hand, CD sales dropped. Since the iTunes Plus launch, Coolfer says, Dark Side of the Moon CD sales dropped 12%, A Rush Of Blood To The Head CD sales dropped 24%, and Oh No CD sales went down 45%.
