Google and Universal to Sell DRM-Free Music

eliminatedrm.jpgGoogle seems to be making strange turns in the past weeks. Recently it dropped its DRM-protected video store and now The York Times reports that Google and Universal together will sell songs DRM free.

I don't have to tell you about the advantages of DRM and therefore don't have to mention that the customer options in this music store will be limited. Want to rent music? Forget it. Not going to happen. You can only buy music on a per-song, and if you're lucky, per-album basis. Yes friends, look forward to pull out your wallet at every single purchase.

Go to the Zune Music store if you want options.
