Broadcasters Want Digital Music Download Stores As Well
from the oh-great,-more-incompatibilities... dept
Because there simply aren't enough different and incompatible music download stores out there already, a number of radio broadcasters are considering plans to enter the game as well. Of course, they hope to leverage their existing broadcasts by allowing users to immediately download a track they're listening to being broadcast. It's an interesting concept in theory, but considering the hodge-podge of different copy protection technologies, music download stores and devices, you have to wonder if people are going to simply declare that they've had enough. Who wants to worry that the CD they bought at Tower Records only works on Tower-certified CD players?
