DRM Free

Now these are good news!After EMI and Apple announced the introduction of DRM free songs on iTunes store is Microsoft’s turn to sign a similar deal.EMI announced that they entire digital music catalog will be available in premium DRM-free form via iTunes in May.Higher-quality music files, which will play on any computer and any digital-audio player, will not replace the copy-protected EMI music currently sold through iTunes. Rather, they will complement the standard 99-cent iTunes downloads and will be sold at a premium: $1.29 per song.
Now,Bill Gates said that the current DRM technologies are too complicated for regular users and they are better off purchasing music CDs and ripping the music from them for listening on computers and portable music players.I agree with you Bill 100%!It was time to do this move!
