According to Paidcontent.org, Yahoo! is experimenting with DRM-free digital downloads. There’s only one so far – a pricey Jessica Simpson MP3 – but it’s part of a general anti-DRM attitude at the firm. Paidcontent makes an interesting point:
On the survey Yahoo Music is doing, one of the questions in the survey: â€œWould you consider paying $1.09 for a single, unrestricted MP3 download that would have absolutely no limitations on its use and could be transferred to any portable audio player or computer?â€ …this is one way labels can subvert the power Apple holds over the digital music market, and Iâ€™m sure some of this is playing out behind the scenes with this move.
