It’s been rumoured for a while, now it’s a fact. A major record label has ditched DRM, and is supplying much higher quality versions of their tracks. The only question remaining is how much extra we shall have to pay for the privilege of being able to play our music wherever we like (as should have always been the case).
By providing DRM-free downloads, we aim to address the lack of interoperability which is frustrating for many music fans. We believe that offering consumers the opportunity to buy higher quality tracks and listen to them on the device or platform of their choice will boost sales of digital music.
We’ve been saying this to the record industry for years - at last they are catching on. Hooray!
