We’ve been checking the calendar and April Fools’ Day was definitely yesterday, so we think we’re safe.Steve Jobs has hopped over to London today to take the stage at EMI with its head honcho Eric Nicoli. Word is they’re about to announce that the record company will be selling its wares, sans copy protection, via iTunes.It’s long been rumoured that EMI’s been considering ditching DRM. Jobs is also no fan of digital-rights adornments. He blamed the record companies for binding his hands, so a deal with EMI to untie them isn’t so hard to believe.We’re still having to pinch ourselves on this one but our champagne corks are poised. We’ll be blogging live from the event over at Live Stuff, so keep it Stuff.tv, yeah?
