iTunes goes DRM-free

February 2009


Apple’s iTunes has finally reached a deal with Sony, Universal and Warner allowing them to sell DRM-free music from all four major record companies via their iTunes Music Store. The download site already had an ‘DRM-free’ agreement with EMI. Apple have also said that iTunes would soon introduce a three-tier price structure – with tracks for 59p, 79p and 99p (69, 99 and 129 cents in the US). In a press release, Apple boss Steve Jobs said “We are thrilled to be able to offer our iTunes customers DRM-free iTunes Plus songs in high quality audio and our iPhone 3G customers the ability to download music from iTunes anytime, anywhere over their 3G network at the same price as downloading to your computer or via Wi-Fi“.
