But, there's a price.

Anyway, Yahoo Music and Sony have teamed up to offer (legal) online music purchases that lack any Digital Rights Management copy protection software.

BUT, the songs that don't have DRM are going to cost $1.99 per song instead of the usual 99 cents.

Here's the link to the story: http://www.itwire.com.au/content/view/5031/53/

I peronally have some mixed fealings about this. Generally speaking, it's a step in the right direction. But I'm dissapointed with both Sony and Yahoo for doubling the price, and not just converting all of their music to the non-DRM format. They screw-ya over any way they can.

That good, DRM is a big pain in the back side. I'm not really surpised that they doubled the price for DRM-less tracks though.

There test track is Jessica Simpson though? :rolleyes: Not any of my choices but ok....

Of course they do, anything to get a little more money for them.

I wasn't quite jumping up and down when I read that bit either.
