Nokia Attacks Apple’s Itunes in Australia

April 22, 2008

Nokia is diving into the music business down under.

I just read an article in an Australian publication about how the Finland based company is going in for the kill (Today: April 22) with a more expensive-than-itunes digital music store ($1.70 per song, $17.99 per album–AUS dollars) and a subscription based service where they charge $10/month for all-you-can-eat music. The thing is, the songs disappear if you stop paying the subscription. I don’t know if that’s going to fly or not. We shall see.

Apple definitely has something up their secretive sleeves and they’ll be watching Nokia like a hawk down under.

The world of music is changing yet again!

I leave you with a debate on the Pros and Cons of DRM (Digital Rights Management) featuring Gerd Leonhard (who we interviewed recently for our upcoming book).

Enjoy!

Make Great Music,

    Interesting!
    Whenever I post about the future of music, I always hold back from mentioning DRM as I’m unsure how long it will last in the current climate. Contrast to that, I’m unsure how some proposed leading models would survive without DRM.

    Would like to know about your book aswell.

    Best of luck;
