Some leading music labels are in talks with online retailers to raise wholesale prices for digital music downloads in an attempt to capitalise on burgeoning demand for legal online music.I WILL NOT pay more than $.99 for a song online.
The moves, which suggest the labels want a bigger slice of the fledgling market's spoils, has angered Steve Jobs, the Apple Computer chief executive behind the iTunes online music store.iTunes is the best online digital music service out there. If Apple caves and the prices go higher, I won't buy. I will just buy my CD's used at pawn shops for much, much, much less than they sell for new.
Music industry executives said introductory wholesale prices for digital tracks had been set low to stimulate demand, but Apple's success had prompted concern that they may now be too low.Oh no! Apple's being too successful! Raise the prices! ::shakes head::
