Warner Music opens MP3 agreement with Amazon
« on: December 27, 2007, 08:35:49 pm »

Only Sony/BMG is holding out now.


"Warner Music Group, a major holdout on selling music online without copy protection, caved in to the growing trend Thursday and agreed to sell its tunes on Amazon.com Inc.'s digital music store.
 
"Until now, Warner Music had resisted offering songs by its artists in the MP3 format, which can be copied to multiple computers and burned onto CDs without restriction and played on most PCs and digital media players, including Apple Inc.'s iPod and Microsoft Corp.'s Zune.

"The deal raises the total number of MP3s for sale through Amazon's music download store to more than 2.9 million. Warner Music's entire catalog, including work by artists Led Zeppelin, Aretha Franklin and Sean Paul, will be added to the site throughout the week. The Amazon store launched with nearly 2.3 million songs in September."

This would mean even more for MC as amazon mp3 is integrated with MC.

Way to go Warner. I hope that Sony will also join the drm-free party in the first half of 2008.

I belonged to the BMG CD club once, for about 7 years

I did not like buying tracks on complete CD's that sucked

the last time I bought a CD was at a pawn Shop for $1.00
