    iTunes - goes DRM free

    Advertisement




    according to the website:

    "High-quality, DRM-free music. iTunes Plus is the new standard on iTunes.


    Now, you can choose from millions of iTunes Plus songs from all four major music labels and thousands of independents. With iTunes Plus, you get high-quality, 256-Kbps AAC encoding. All free of burn limits and digital rights management (DRM). So iTunes Plus music will play on iPod, Apple TV, all Mac and Windows computers, and many other digital music players. It’s also easy to upgrade your iTunes library to iTunes Plus. You don’t have to buy the song or album again. Just pay the 30˘ per song upgrade price. (Music video upgrades are 60˘ and entire albums can be upgraded for 30 percent of the album price.)"



    see what else is new for iTunes

    That's been out for a while. I have moved most of my iTunes music to my PSP and trying to get it on my BB.

    The .30 is just to upgrade from the DRM-protected to DRM-free version of a song. You still have to pay .99 per song if it's the first time you're downloading it.

    I know I would be mad to have to pay .30 for every song. Of course I don't buy music from itunes because I like it to be free to begin with.

    After you have bought it, couldn't you use a program such as WavPad file converter to a file that is more editable?????? I don't like to save .mp4 and would rather have all at the mp3.

    I think the point is that all of the music in the Itunes store will be availabe to upgrade from DRM to non-DRM, higher bit rate tracks. Although the process isn't new, there was only a limited selection of tracks that could be 'upgraded'. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    so how do you do this, I have yet to see a dialog that lets me convert my previously purchased music.
    ART

    Mot 7868 -> Mot v60 ->
    TREO 650 -> TREO 750 (2d) -> TREO 680 (2m) ->
    BB 8100 -> BOLD

    I think it is taking time on Apple's side. I've received notifications to upgrade some of the DRM tracks in my library, but I not all of them. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
