Amazon.com Announces DRM Free Music Store to Launch This Year

Amazon.com announced that later this year it will open a music store that will sell DRM-free music from more than 12,000 music labels. (I didn’t know that there were 12,000 music labels). Every song and album in the Amazon catalog will be in MP3 format and DRM free meaning that you will be able to use any device, including iPods, to listen to your digital music.

No word on pricing but a move toward DRM free music is a great step and one I hope New York Publishers will look to in generating ebook content that is also DRM free.
