The Universal Music Group, the world’s largest music label, on Thursday says it would test the sales of no DRM on its songs. This deal could start a world without DRM soon enough, with EMI establishing its anti-DRM stance.
The deal, however, won’t be on iTunes. No reason has been specifie, but it might have something to do with its feud with Apple over pricing.
Leaving iTunes out might be a good thing as well, with many people buying their songs on smaller and larger resellers like Real Rhapsody, Wal-Mart and MSN.
