Online Music A No-Win? [7:42 am]

From The Register: DRM music goldrush is a race for losers - mp3.com founder

Apple is leading a race of lemmings into the zero-profit business of closed music downloads, says the founder of MP3.com, Michael Robertson.

“It seems kind of crazy to me, the economics don’t make sense,” Robertson told us Thursday. “Why are all these guys like Microsoft and Wal-Mart rushing into a business where the industry leader says ‘we cannot make money with the contracts that we have’?”

“This is a race where the winner gets shot in the head.”
