EMI Removes DRM

If this story had been released yesterday I would have thought it was an April Fools joke.

Today, Apple and EMI announced higher quality, DRM FREE music available for download from iTunes. (DRM music will still be available from EMI, but only in lower quality formats)

This has got to be the biggest step towards a better managed digital music era than any other to date, I can picture Tom, Molly and Veronica jumping for joy, mores the pity South Africa still can’t use the iTunes store.
