Music Giants Files For Bankruptcy

Recommended Posts

... it isn't good news...... I have to say that while they are Window's centric (that isn't a crime in any way, shape or form) and they didn't 'get' that most of us (ALL?) don't want DRM, I hope that they can figure out where they went wrong and end up getting folks to buy more music. I like their catalogue, just not the Windows (semi) exclusivity and the DRM. I'm certainly not rejoicing this.
