Big Four Music Labels to Launch New CMX Album Download Format
Music's big four are launching CMX in the hopes of offering fans more for their digital music download bang -- will it work?
Apple was approached by the record labels to adapt this technology, but ultimately decline any offer. It is now understood that Apple is putting together their own similar service -- named Cocktail -- to launch in the next 2 months. That admission hardly surprises me, seeing as how Apple doesn't care to play by anyone's rules but their own. They have a right to call their own shots, but consumers are also entitled to some variety in their digital music downloads, and thus we have CMX.
