Sony BMG to add DRM-free MP3s to Amazon


Sony BMG is readying the other half of their reported move away from DRMed music; two days ago, they announced plans to release retail gift cards which can be redeemed for plain 'ol MP3s, but there was no word of a plan that wouldn't require people to actually leave their caves or, heaven forbid, dress themselves. Cue the other shoe: Amazon announced today that they will be hosting DRM-free Sony BMG tracks, completing its collection of DRM-free tracks from each of the four major music labels, which already includes EMI, Vivendi Universal, and Warner. The Sony BMG tracks will be available "later this month" and should be priced commensurate with the service's current offerings.
