UMG to offer 1,000 albums through EMusic

Vivendi Universal announced this week that it will make available around 1,000 of its 11,000 albums through EMusic. However, albums that will be available, are mostly albums that are not chart-toppers, but from smaller names instead.
According to Vivendi's Universal Music Group, they want to evaluate whether selling music through the Net will make people also to buy the physical copy of the album or does it cannibalize the physical album sales.

EMusic, which is also owned by Vivendi, is one of the only online music services that delivers the goods without any major strings attached -- users are free to transfer the tracks to their portable MP3 players, burn the tracks on CD, etc.
