After my post yesterday I saw this feature on Wired putting a case forward for MP3 far more eloquently than me. As an example of how frustrating this is, consider the work Million are doing for Jamiroquai. We would love to sell full length tracks from Jamiroquai.com – remixes, demos, alternate versions etc. But we want to do it is as easy a way as possible, which means no DRM – after all, these tracks are for hardcore fans who are unlikely to send them to friends. Easiest way would be to use a system like Paypal or reverse bill SMS to charge a micropayment and allow fans to download an MP3. But how easy is it for an artiste on a major label to supply their own fans with their own music? Well, the reason it isn’t on Jamiroquai.com yet is an indication! The tracks are all available of course via P2P in variable states of quality, but try to sell them legitimately and you run into a wall of corporate silence and ‘policy’.
