DRM-free Warner music makes temporary appearance

DRM-free Warner music

Albums by Warner artists such as Madonna and Prince are being sold DRM-free, but only for a short time, Ars Technica reports. The files can be found on AnywhereCD, a site recently launched by founder Michael Robertson; the difficulty is that while Robertson does have the right to sell Warner music, the record label insists that DRM was a mandatory part of the agreement. AnywhereCD has as a result been sent a notice of termination, requiring the removal of all Warner music.

Warner has been notoriously resistant to efforts to remove DRM, making general statements against it, and attacking proposals by Apple CEO Steve Jobs. It is however not alone, since the only label to officially eliminate copy protection is EMI.
