iTunes DRM-free upgrade is all or nothing

Posted on Wednesday, January 14 2009 @ 19:14:46 CET by

Last week Apple announced iTunes will go DRM-free but if you want to upgrade your old iTunes collection it may cost you quite a lot of money if you have lots of songs. Gizmodo complains iTunes doesn't enable you to choose which songs, music videos or albums you want to upgrade to DRM-free formats - it's all or nothing and it will cost you 30 cent per song, 60 cent per video and 30 percent of the album price.
Seriously, they want $250—actually, they want $250.06 but what's a few pennies between lifelong friends?—to upgrade the 1,000+ songs I've bought over the years. That would mean that all those albums I paid $9.99 for would actually cost me $13 in the end. That's the same amount the damn CD would have cost me in the first place, if I still bought those museum pieces. And the CD would have given me the option to rip at higher quality than 256Kbps, and would come with liner notes telling me who played that sick drum solo on Track 12, to boot.
