Digital Mu$ic Prices: Going Up?

According to a Financial Times article labels are looking to raise the price of digital downloads. I happen to be of the opinion that the $0.99/$9.99 pricing scheme is the sweet spot. I still purchase CDs in stores, but I also download quite a bit as well. I’m just barely comfortable not having the physical product and all of the limits that come with music files that contain DRM. If they decide to raise prices, I probably will buy more CDs in stores and download even less. While I have somewhat of a moral objection to illegally downloading music (without purchasing it somewhere else), I’m sure raising prices would push a lot of people over the edge and music piracy would again be on the rise. I sure wish the labels would stop being so damn greedy.
