The rumors were too good to be true. EMI allegedly will abandon DRM but not without a bunch of cash up front from vendors like Apple and Microsoft. How nice.
The article points to Warner's recent pressure on EMI as possible motivation. My cynical side tells me we all shouldn't have been so enthusiastic from the get-go. Or they are given his-Steveness a taste of his own medicine - "Don't look to us for why we still have DRM, ask Steve Jobs why he won't pony up the dough".
