Amazon Competes With Apple iTunes – Sells DRM-Free Song MP3s

Amazon.com has announced that it is taking on Apple iTunes by selling mp3s without the digital rights management (DRM) designed to prevent you from transferring mp3s freely between devices. Kudos to Amazon for acknowledging what consumers want and giving it to them. Apple is too much in bed with RIAA on copyright infringement issues to take a leap of faith and let consumers use music they purchase as they see fit. Apple will either adapt or get punished by the marketplace.
