Apple will sell non-DRM music soon
Apple will start selling non-DRM music provided by EMI in May. That's the bottomline of a press release published yesterday by Apple Inc. The songs will be higher quality (256 kbps AAC, as opposed to 128 kbps AAC) and $0.30 more expensive.
This is great news for beaTunes users, since until now Apple's DRM system Fairplay prevented them from analyzing their own music.
Artists like The Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, Janet Jackson, Mando Diao, etc. are all signed by EMI.
