Rumors have started circulating that EMI will license music DRM-free. Recent articles in the Chicago Sun-Times and New York Times have all the details. Also, EMI is the only "big four" music company with an environmental policy, at least that I was able to find. According to their own figures they've reduced CO2 emissions from factories by about two thirds in 10 years. However, they haven't made much of a dent in CO2 emissions from shipping. One can only imagine what they could do if they were able to boost online music sales enough to actually manufacture and ship fewer CDs. EMI has also made significant reductions in hazardous waste, water use, and HCFCs (ozone depleting chemicals). One can only hope these numbers are as good as they seem.
