Well, only the EMI-owned music. Except for the Beatles. And only if you pay an extra 30% per track. Is this finally the light at the end of the tunnel that is DRM nonsense?

i dunno, music companies will not give up without a fight.

The other major labels than EMI are already expressing opposition to this move. It certainly isn't going to spread across the industry any time soon, I think, although maybe with increasing consumer demand they may begin to relent. Sony will probably be the last to give it up.

I still buy records, I don't even usually get CDs let alone buying music online, so this doesn't affect me directly; but, DRM is a recipe for failure so I am very glad to see this happening.
