EMI makes deal with SNOCAP EMI has announced that they have made a deal with SNOCAP to sell DRM-Free music.
This latest deal will allow artists to sell their music from blogs, off their own websites, and from social networking sites such as MySpace. The songs will also be encoded at 320kbps.

Beginning next week, EMI will begin to sell its catalogue through SNOCAP's Mystores. According to SNOCAP, a few of the artists piloting the move are 30 Seconds To Mars, The Almost, The Bird and The Bee, KORN, Dean Martin, MIMs, Relient K, Saosin, Sick Puppies, and Yellowcard.

SNOCAP uses a feature it calls "spread the word" which works exactly like YouTube's video embedding feature. Artists can embed a retail point anywhere on the internet to sell their music from.

“SNOCAP’s MyStore technology is an exciting new proposition and another step forward for consumers, artists and the digital music market overall,”
said Eric Nicoli, CEO of EMI Group. “Giving consumers the capability of buying music directly from their favorite artists’ websites and social networking areas is a great way to connect artists directly with fans. We’re delighted that our DRM-free, higher-quality offering will be available this way, so that fans can play the music they buy on a range of devices.”

Funny, I thought a while back EMI was talking about how it was just about a dead company...seems like maybe they've found their second wind and it's called:

Giving the customer what they want to have and not what you think they should have!
