At last, senior vice president of Apple marketing. Phil Shiller finally announced at Macworld yesterday that iTunes is in the process of going DRM free!
Yesterday, 8 million tracks were converted to non-DRM tracks thanks to a deal with Sony BMG, Universal, and Warner music, and it has been said that all 10 million tracks on iTunes will be DRM free by the end of this quarter.
It has not yet been confirmed whether music you have already bought from iTunes will be stripped of its DRM, but we’ll soon find out.
If you use iTunes, which millions of us do, this is a big day. This may well cause the end of DRM forever, eventually.
