Yahoo! Music Against DRM

The Yahoo! Music Blog reported this week that Yahoo! has convinced Sony BMG to release customized Jessica Simpson tracks as unrestricted mp3s. Yahoo! points out that the only ones who benefit from DRM are the companies that make the technology. As far as musicians, labels, and consumers are concerned, the music provider is spending more money to provide less value. Go Yahoo!

More unrestricted mp3s were released after consumers were convinced the're getting more value out of it instead of getting the DRM music. It is far much better to have more options for output format these days but I’ll settle for MP3 any day as long as I can truly OWN the music.
