Wal-Mart selling DRM-free music

Posted on Tuesday, August 21 2007 @ 19:38:59 CEST by


More and more big players are starting to give DRM-free music a chance. Today Yahoo News reports Wal-Mart is now offering thousands of albums and songs from major labels like Universal Music Group and EMI for sale without DRM protection.
Wal-Mart said it would sell the "DRM-free" MP3 downloads of music by artists like the Rolling Stones, Amy Winehouse and Maroon 5 for 94 cents per track or $9.22 per album. It said the new format let customers play music on almost any device, including iPods, iPhones and Microsoft Corp's Zune portable media player.

The announcement comes as major record labels debate whether dropping DRM will hurt digital music sales or encourage piracy. Copy protection software prevents unauthorized copying of a digital song bought from an online store, but it also limits where an owner can listen to it.
