DRM: Another Nail in the Coffin, and EU Regulation

BusinessWeek.com reports that:

In a move that would mark the end of a digital music era, Sony BMG Music Entertainment is finalizing plans to sell songs without the copyright protection software that has long restricted the use of music downloaded from the Internet… Sony BMG would become the last of the top four music labels to drop DRM.

This via Mashable Stan, who hopes that “DRM will soon be a relic, forgotten by everyone except tech blogger-fossils like us.” But we tech bloggers are a lot less fossilized that the European Union, which wants to establish standards for DRM.
