Sony won’t be pulling their music from iTunes

Last Saturday the head of Sony Australia gave an interview on how Sony was thinking about pulling their music from iTunes. Today it looks like that might not be the case. The San Francisco Chronicle asked Sony Network Entertainment COO Brandon Layden about the story from last Saturday, and he says it ain't gonna happen:

Sony Music as I understand it has no intention of withdrawing from iTunes, they're one of our biggest partners in the digital domain. I think those words were either taken out of context or the person who spoke them was unclear on the circumstances.

See, I told you they weren't do anything crazy.

Now, this isn't someone with their music division, but then again neither was the other the other fellow. I thought at the time the statements from last Saturday were made in the heat of the moment, and that it wasn't going to become ooffcial Sony policy. It looks like I was right.

Do you realize that one of the likely side effects of Sony pulling music from iTunes is piracy? I'm sur ethat crossed their mind.
