Warner Offers DRM-free Music through Amazon
Thursday, December 27th, 2007 at 11:10 AM - by
Amazon.com announced on Thursday that music from Warner Music Group is available for download without copy protection through the company's Amazon MP3 music store. Since the tracks are available in MP3 format, they are playable on almost any digital media device, including Apple's iPod.
Music downloads at Amazon MP3 are priced between US$0.89 and $0.99 each, and most albums are priced from $5.99 up to $9.99.
The door to DRM-free music downloads opened when Apple began offering copy protection-free tracks from EMI's library in April. Since then, most labels have begun offering versions of their songs without copy protection, but not at the iTunes Store.
So far, the only other big name player outside of the iTunes Store is Amazon MP3, and Amazon offers its selections without DRM from more labels than Apple. So far, the only label offering copy protection-free music through the iTunes Store is EMI.
