On Wednesday, Amazon.com announced that it plans to launch a DRM-free online music store later this year. The site would sell audio content in a straight MP3 format without any Digital Rights Management protection constraints built into the files sold according to Macworld News.
This news follows announcements by EMI and Apple in April that the companies would be selling online music content free of Digital Rights Management code. Amazon’s tactic would allow the songs and albums sold through its music store to be played by almost any device that could read and play the MP3 file format. Purchased songs could also be stored to an iPod or other digital music player as well as burned to CD-ROM.
