Legal Drm Free Music Tracks Finally

By: John Gray

Yesterday online retailer Play.com became the first UK retailer to offer digital track downloads without Digital Right Management (DRM) copyright, this simply means that they can be played on any MP3 player, and aren't restricted.

The files are DRM free MP3 format and will work with most MP3 players, including iPods, Macs PCs and Windows Media Player.

PlayDigital tracks will be 65 pence a track for the top 100 tracks, other tracks will be 70 pence - which is cheaper than iTunes 79 pence a track. Albums start from ?4.95, and all the 100 top albums will be ?1 cheaper than iTunes. So not only are they DRM free they are also cheaper than iTunes, the market leader.

This also is a good deal for mobile music fans, as long as your mobile will play MP3 tracks you can take advantage of PlayDigital. And it is cheaper than your networks offerings: Vodafone currently offer music tracks at 99 pence, T-Mobile's Mobile Jukebox is ?1 a track and 3's Music Store is ?1.29. Vodafone do have a Music Station offer for ?1.99 a week which does give unlimited music downloads - but customers need to be aware that all their downloaded tracks will vanish once the subscription is ended.

PlayDigital tracks are all at CD quality or above, are 100% legal and can be re-downloaded from the 'Your Account' section should you delete them accidentally.
