Nachdem nun auch Warner Music mit an Bord ist, sieht es ganz so aus, als ob auch der vierte und letzte Major Sony BMG seinen DRM-Kurs aufgeben wird:

In a move that would mark the end of a digital music era, Sony BMG Music Entertainment is finalizing plans to sell songs without the copyright protection software that has long restricted the use of music downloaded from the Internet, BusinessWeek.com has learned. […] Details of Sony BMG’s plans are expected to emerge in the coming weeks. Justin Timberlake, the popular recording artist signed to the Sony-owned Jive label, is participating in a Super Bowl promotion with Pepsi (PEP) that will kick off Feb. 3 and offer free distribution of 1 billion songs from major labels, including Sony BMG, through Amazon’s DRM-free download service, according to a person familiar with the matter. Sony has been experimenting with DRM-free songs for about six months. (BusinessWeek)

Mit diesem Schritt Sony BMGs dürfte sich das Thema DRM bei Downloads endgültig erledigt haben. Wurde aber auch Zeit.
