It follows 7Digital, which was the first European site to offer copy protection free tunes, while Amazon’s US music store has been divorced from DRM for ages.
And iTunes? Unfortunately it can only offer you the EMI catalogue plus certain independent labels in the iTunes plus format. Disappointing.
In another slap to Apple’s music store, Play.com will charge a paltry 65p for each of the top 100 songs onsite and selected new albums, such as the new Oasis, will set you back a penny shy of a fiver.
