Amazon . com to market DRM-free MP3 music
Like Apple’s iTunes Store, Amazon’s digital music store will offer you EMI Music’s entire digital repertoire as MP3s in track or album form.
EMI Music today announced it has arrived at a contract with Amazon . com.com that will Amazon . com.com to give the catalogue with the online music store Amazon . com intends to launch later this season in america.
The Amazon . com.com digital music store will solely offer tracks and albums as MP3s free from digital legal rights management (DRM) limitations. EMI may be the initial music company to create its entire digital music catalogue readily available for purchase.
The agreement follows EMI’s launch of their new premium download offering, by which the organization started offering retailers DRM-free music to market within the audio format of the choice in a number of bitrates as much as CD quality.
Eric Nicoli, Chief executive officer of EMI Group, stated: “Amazon . com.com is symbolic of an excellent buyer experience, and they’ve become an essential retail partner of ours. I applaud Shaun Bezos and Amazon . com.com to make this move. Amazon . com.com’s deep knowledge of consumers and vast understanding of music makes way for any smooth entry in to the digital arena. Arriving within the digital music market will offer you much more consumer choice and will also be a large advance in addressing the possible lack of interoperability that has frustrated many music fans.”
Shaun Bezos, Founder and Chief executive officer of Amazon . com.com, stated: “Our MP3-only strategy means all of the music that buyers buy on Amazon . com is definitely DRM-free and plays on any device.”
