Digital Liner Notes Coming Soon

The Financial Times reports that Apple is working on a deal with the four largest record labels to include elaborate digital liner notes with downloaded albums. Under the plan, Apple would include a new interactive booklet, sleeve notes, lyrics, photos and other interactive features with each download.

According to the Financial Times report, Apple is working with EMI, Sony Music, Warner Music and Universal Music Group on the project Apple has codenamed "Cocktail." Apple hopes to launch the new feature in September.

What do you think? Will this make you any more or less likely to buy digital downloads over physical CDs?
