This press release is dated 2-April, so it might be real: EMI Music launches DRM-free superior sound quality downloads across its entire digital repertoire.
EMI Music today announced that it is launching new premium downloads for retail on a global basis, making all of its digital repertoire available at a much higher sound quality than existing downloads and free of digital rights management (DRM) restrictions.
The new higher quality DRM-free music will complement EMI's existing range of standard DRM-protected downloads already available.
Apparently, you pay an extra $0.30 per track if you want the DRM-free version ($1.29 vs. $0.99). So, in some cases you will be paying more than for the same CD.
eMusic is still the best deal out there.
