iTunes Plus Promises DRM-Free Music With One Condition…

May 30, 2007 at 8:14 pm 3 comments

Millions of downloads and billions in revenue later, Apple’s hit iTunes has been quite the companion to the mighty iPod. No other company (not even the giant, Microsoft) has been able to dethrone Apple’s monstrous “monopoly” (if you may) on the market. Many simply ignore the notion of iTunes, though, because it is DRM protected and only for iTunes. PSP owners can’t use the software giant, for example. After a shocking announcement from recording company-giant EMI, going DRM-free, iTunes “Plus” will include their whole catalog for download. In addition, the new iTunes “Plus” will allow for you to download DRM-free versions of music for nearly a dollar more–and you can even convert portions of your music into unprotected music for $0.30USD per compatible song. This idea is indeed a smart one, as Apple’s veteran software will get even more of a backing. But perhaps it benefits owners of the Zune, PSP, Mp3 Phones, and others because it will finally allow us to get the latest songs onto our devices without the hassle of DRM protection or the legal risks of illegal downloads. PSPFanboy’s Andrew Yoon even has a guide to show you exactly how to achieve the small task of transferring DRM-free music. Enjoy!–I know I will.

    Yep, but that doesn’t mean Apple is allowing piracy.

    Your account info is embedded into the song, so don’t be stupid and put it on Limewire.

    True; Apple’s only purpose is to place these songs on other devices.

    Yeah, and for people who didn’t already know, you can just burn iTunes protected songs to a CD and rip them back in as an MP3 and transfer it to your PSP.
