DRM-free music stalls
Users may have to wait a bit longer for DRM-free music from the major, despite Apple CEO Steve Jobs' recent call for DRM-free music. EMI has reportedly pulled out of negotiations with online music labels to provide DRM-free music, according to Bloomberg News. The negotiations, with online retailers including Microsoft, stalled over the size of advance payment, the report said. EMI, the only major label willing to explore DRM-free music, demanded an upfront payment to compensate for its risk in releasing the music without software that prevents copying.

Online music retailers such as Real and Yahoo have backed Jobs' call for DRM-free music in an effort to help challenge Apple's industry-leading iTunes.
