    Kudos to them for dropping their DRM, but this still doesn’t help the little guy. Walmart has worked to virtually kill a once-vibrant market place for smaller artist. It has become such a power-house, a 600 pound gorilla in the music business, that record labels are taking fewer risks on unknown artists and are instead vying for the limited shelf space in Walmart’s tiny offering. No wonder so many artists are going to independent labels

    @strongbad I totally agree. This isnt realy going to help too many people and I dont think Walmart are much of a player in the music business anyways.
