Amazon to offer unprotected songs for sale

Posted on Saturday, Apr 28 2007 @ 20:00 CEST by Thomas De Maesschalck
It's rumoured that Amazon is in talks with major music labels to start offering a new online music service in May which will sell unprotected MP3s.
But the Times pressed undo on one of Billboard's assertions: "Speculation that Vivendi’s Universal Music was already signed up to test classical MP3 downloads is understood to be wide off the mark."

It adds: "Amazon's efforts have been held back by various problems. It originally wanted to launch its own music player to rival the iPod in tandem with the store and held discussions with manufacturers, but these failed to develop successfully."
