Now major labels are thinking about DRM free MP3 sales

This is going further and faster than I thought, driven by fears that illegal file sharing is starting to hit the growth of digital music sales.

This is from the International Herald Tribune.

Executives of several technology companies meeting here at Midem, the annual global trade fair for the music industry, said this weekend that a move toward the sale of unrestricted digital files in the MP3 format from at least one of the four major record companies could come within months.

Thanks to Fred Wilson for the lead on this (but Fred, the NYT article you pointed to was DRM blocked).
