Sony BMG soon with DRM-free songs?
According to a report by the US business magazine Businessweek, Sony BMG, the fourth and final major label, is planning to launch its first DRM-free offer. The first songs from the BMG portfolio without DRM should be available in the first quarter of this year.
According to this, the offer could start as early as the beginning of February if an alliance consisting of Pepsi in the USA , Wal-Mart and Amazon will try to bring one billion DRM-free songs to the American people in light of the upcoming 2008 Superbowl. It has been agreed that Sony BMG will take this step in the medium term. It is not for nothing that the Sony subsidiary has been testing sales opportunities for DRM-free music for over six months.
