Good catch. With this posting, consumer reaction is now validated. Prior, we were dealing personal feelings which had no basis for a reaction. DRM issue is not new.

Now the second leg of this issue can be addressed, quality of the DRM Free track. As with your previous posting, some have lessened the quality to counter act the pending understanding of “sold”. This current info not only reaffirms consumers intent it brings into play the one complaint manufactures hung-on too, album sales. Consumers are again using their purchasing power to make a point. Affordable priced solutions. Total sales will influence any negative feedback.
