DRM-free songs on iTunes!

Record label EMI just announced that they will sell their music through itunes without DRM! And at twice the sound quality of usual itunes songs! I am a bit disappointed that the DRM-free songs will be more expensive at $1.29, but still – this is huge!

Here’s the press release.

Here’s a list of EMI’s bands.

And here’s live coverage of the announcement.

I’m just glad this wasn’t announced on April 1st, as nobody would have believed it 🙂
