No more DRM!

"Amazon.com has now secured the right to sell DRM-free music from all four major labels, snagging Sony BMG.

So farewell then, music DRM. You were a stupid idea and we won't miss you.

The end came quicker than anyone had expected. Just eight weeks ago 7Digital predicted - to hums, buts and maybes - that DRM would disappear from digital music by this summer. Now everyone is embracing a DRM-free music future.

Well, almost everyone. Curiously, Boing Boing has yet to announce the death of DRM music. Google returns 42,000 results for a search on "DRM" at the blog, but the end of the DRM era has passed without comment.
