Sony screws up DRM-free downloads

Sony BMG Confirms DRM-free Music Downloads, But …:
The ideal situation would have been simple downloads from say, Amazon MP3. But no, Sony had to add brick-and-mortar into the process. You will have to buy a gift card at a retail outlet and then use it on Sony’s MusicPass site, and only that site. This new program, called Platinum MusicPass, will start on January 15th, according to a press release at the MusicPass site.

Seriously. Would someone pin a 'going out of business' sign on these guys?
