Will DRM Vanish From iTunes Today?
Apple will push the button and make all the bits of DRM dissappear from its iTunes store as of today. At least that's the latest rumor on the market.
December 9, 2008
Last but not least, the “no DRM” move should be made worldwide at the same time.
At press time, this looks like a “half right, half wrong” report. It's quite possible that the 3 music giants would agree at some point to completely give up on DRM. Apple began this process a long time ago, other online music retailers followed soon.
Music files with no DRM software are clearly the way to do business in the online era and nobody can deny that. However, it's hard to believe that such a drastic change would take place anytime soon, especially today.
