Amazon to launch DRM-free mp3 music download store
Posted on 17-May-2007 09:44 | Filed under: News



Amazon.com will launch a digital music store later this year offering millions of songs in the DRM-free MP3 format from more than 12,000 record labels.

EMI Music's digital catalog is the latest addition to the store. Every song and album in the Amazon.com digital music store will be available exclusively in the MP3 format without digital rights management (DRM) software.

Amazon's DRM-free MP3s will free customers to play their music on virtually any of their personal devices including PCs, Macs, iPods, Zunes and to burn songs to CDs for personal use.

"Our MP3-only strategy means all the music that customers buy on Amazon is always DRM-free and plays on any device," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO. "We're excited to have EMI joining us in this effort and look forward to offering our customers MP3s from amazing artists like Coldplay, Norah Jones and Joss Stone."
