Should I feel shortchanged by EMI?

In the digital music world at least, it seems that the price of freedom is 30 cents. That’s the premium that iTunes will charge for any track from EMI’s catalog that is DRM-free and – as a little sweetener – higher quality. Here’s the official press release. On the whole, I think it’s great news that a major label has finally sniffed the coffee and addressed consumers’ hatred of DRM. With any luck, others will follow suit and many are already predicting the death of digital rights management. Nevertheless, I can’t help feeling a little nagging sense of irritation and injustice that once again it is the consumer who will bear the cost of this move. Am I just being peevish?
