EMI Music starts selling DRM-free music
DRM? We don't need no steenking DRM! At least thats what EMI thinks! As of yesterday, you can now buy DRM free usic from Yahoo's music store for a buck a piece. It will be nice not to have to worry about which device your content can play on. Show your support, go purchase a DRM album. I am on way now to check out Yahoo Music.
From the article:
The releases are part of an experiment to
gauge demand for tracks that can be played on any digital music player
capable of playing MP3s, one of the oldest music compression formats.
copy-protected tracks are only playable on certain devices. By selling
MP3s, recording companies can ensure they can be played on Apple
Computer Inc.'s market-leading iPod players without going through
Apple's iTunes Music Store.
