DRM on it’s way out?

Thursday, August 9th, 2007

I’ve complained about iTunes stranglehold on online music distribution, and despite their willingness to offer some DRM-free music, the vast majority is still locked into Apple: only playable in Apple products like iTunes and iPods.  Following on Amazon.com’s May decision to offer a DRM-free music store, Boing Boing reports that Universal Music is apparently going to experiment for a limited period with DRM-free music.  So buy your music online without DRM crippling where and when you can, and that will hopefully move us towards a DRM-free future.  /soapbox [applause swells and fades]
