Amazon To Sell Unprotected Music

Amazon has announced plans to launch a digital music store that will allow customers to download music without any copyright protection. Amazon has licences to sell music from 12,000 record labels, including EMI Group’s digital catalogue.

Millions of songs will be sold without Digital Rights Management (DRM) software, allowing – for example – customers to burn their own CDs freely.

Amazon says it will launch the new store later this year.

“Our MP3-only strategy means all the music that customers buy on Amazon is always DRM-free and plays on any device,” said Jeff Bezos, chief executive of Amazon.”
