Apple to sell DRM-free music through iTunes - silicon.com

"Apple and EMI have announced they have taken the first steps towards
DRM-free digital music - but only for those who are prepared to pay
extra."



Well it's a start, but where is the advantage over buying the CD and ripping it yourself, given that the price rises push an album over the usual "supermarket" price?



On the bright side it shows that consumer power can have an effect - if we all keep pressing for DRM free music that we can use how we like, where we like and on what we like once we have paid for it eventually the other record companies will offer it.
