iTunes is DRM-free, folks!

January 6th, 2009 at 12:57 PM

Mr. Phil hasn’t announced this yet, but after opening iTunes, we’re now presented with an option to upgrade our library (of UMG music) to DRM-free iTunes Plus status! It looks like it costs $0.30/song to upgrade to iTunes Plus, but this also includes music videos at $0.60/video! So there should be no DRM restrictions on those as well. So happiez.


Alright, it’s just been announced, so here’s the run down:

  • Pricing at $0.69, $0.99, and $1.29 based on the labels and how old the song is
  • All songs in iTunes will eventually be DRM-free
  • In addition to pricing, as previous rumored, you can now download all music from your iPhone over 3G instead of just Wi-Fi only!
