March of the DRM Free Music

If you don't know what DRM (Digital Rights Management) is then you probably don't have an ipod. This is the software embedded in a media file, usually a mp3, to restrict its use. The idea being that you can only play these files on one or two devices. I wanted to point out a couple of new DRM free sites that have popped up recently.

Amazon MP3
  • They have an enormous library from all styles with generous clips and an easy and quick interface.
  • The price is good with most tracks being $1 or less, and you can also drink pepsi and enter in the codes to get free downloads.
  • Amazon Unbox features movies and tvs show for download. Both are excellent. amazon.com

Deutsche Grammophon
  • One of the biggest classical labels in the world and has some of the best artists.
  • Tracks start at $1.29 and go up according to track length (no more must we buy and download whole albums for one track).
  • Many "out of print" titles are now finally available!!

Your favorite artist may also be selling their music on there own website. Check it out.
