Authorized DRM-Free Site Up

2/10/2005 09:10:00 AM Eastern

San Diego — A DRM-free authorized download site called MP3.tunes.com launched with 300,000 songs from independent artists.

The site, created by the founder of MP3.com, doesn’t use DRM (digital rights management) technology to restrict usage, so unlimited CD burning and MP3 sharing is allowed.

Songs are downloaded in 192Kbps MP3 instead of the usual 128Kbps. They can be played back on almost all compressed-music portables, including the iPod, and on all PCs. The songs are available for 88 cents each, or $8.88 per album.

Consumers who buy a new PC or suffer a hard-drive crash can download their paid-for songs without charge from a music locker accessed from any Web browser.
