EMI goes DRM-free - not just on iTunes

Posted on Friday, June 15 2007 @ 15:12:54 CEST by

EMI announced its music will now be available without DRM protection on several online music stores:
Music label EMI is letting more music stores have access to its catalog without using DRM. PassAlong Networks, which provides technology to power online stores like the one belonging to f.y.e., yesterday secured a license to EMI's music, as did the UK's 7digital. Both companies plan to sell the music at higher bit rates than the iTunes Store.

While iTunes encodes non-DRMed music at 256 Kbps, both of the new licensees have opted to go even higher—320 Kbps. Apple uses AAC, while the new services will sell the tunes as MP3 files, so bitrates aren't directly comparable.
