no DRM in iTunes music

iTunesA number of iTunes bashers complain that iTunes locked up the music. In fact, the restriction was needed, but iTunes does give people a huge degree of freedom with its FairPlay. (And those Apple bashers/iTunes bashers kept claiming that you can't burn music you bought from iTunes store, which was completely untrue.) Well, a good news to shut those whingers up... iTunes will offer DRM-free music and even in higher quality from May worldwide.

At the special event in London on Monday, EMI Music announced that it is launching new premium downloads for retail on a global basis, making all of its digital music available at a much higher sound quality than existing downloads and free of digital rights management (DRM) restrictions and that Apple iTunes Store will be the first online retailer to offer legal, higher quality, DRM-free music.

EMISounds good, isn't it? And it's only 30 cents (USD) more the standard format.

The high quality and DRM-free music will be US$1.29/0.99/1.29; however, iTunes will continue to offer consumers the ability to pay US$0.99/0.79/0.99 for standard sound quality tracks with DRM applied.

For more information, please refer to high quality and DRM-free songs on iTunes Store (MacCentre701) or join the discussion - DRM-free and even higher-quality songs on iTunes Store at SillyDog701 Message Centre.

You can buy iTunes music from AntTunes701.
