Universal Experimenting With MP3s Of Back Catalog
from the good-for-them dept
It’s good to see that Universal is at least experimenting with MP3s more and more. The latest move is to offer up MP3s from their back catalog through eMusic, a subscription service they own. These are real MP3s that users can do whatever they want with. Universal says they want to see if offering the MP3s on music that is no longer selling in retail stores will help them generate additional revenue. It sounds like there are at least a few people at Universal who are beginning to see the potential of MP3s, and are putting together these experiments to push forward.
