EMI to offer DRM free music through iTunes

EMI has ditched DRM for music sold through the iTunes store.

New music will be encoded at 256Kb/s (compared to current DRM encoded tracks at 128Kb/s), each track will cost 99p (compared to 79p for DRM encoded).

Users can automagically upgrade all their DRM tracks to non-DRM'ed tracks for 20p per track.

Future video content from EMI will not be DRM'ed and there will be no increase in price.

This is a major change for a big music label and hopefully is the way of things to come.
