EMI, Vivendi and BMG have recently started experimenting with the new fangled internets in a way to make money by selling customers what they want.  Drop by eCoustics to see what they are trying, and some good places to go to buy albums and songs.

"EMI Music backs a label that turns the traditional economics of the recording industry on its head.

Vivendi's Universal Music Group creates multiple pricing schemes for CDs. Sony BMG Music Entertainment

and Yahoo decide to sell a single without digital rights restrictions.

These moves typify a flurry of experimentation by major record labels in recent weeks, and stand in

stark contrast to earlier behavior by an industry that six years ago was best known for launching

anti-piracy lawsuits against Napster -- a network that originally swapped music files for free -- and

individual users."
