Saturn sells DRM-free MP3s

Users who download music from German retailer Saturn's online music store will now be able to share and use their purchased music without the usual restrictions associated with Digital Rights Management (DRM). The company made the announcement on Monday, in the process becoming the first European reseller to offer all of the songs in Universal Music Entertainment library DRM-free. Universal itself is pushing for the move to DRM-free files, with the recent launch of its LostTunes music store.

The company has added 215,000 tracks from Universal's library to its online store in high-quality 320k MP3 format. The number includes the entire collection of the music label's pop and jazz genre, with all classic-genre songs currently being uploaded but not yet available for purchase.

Saturn is offering a select 100,000 of their audio tracks priced at an
equivalent of $1.15 each.

    A clarification

    With regards 'able to share' - technically, yes - legally, no. There is no special sharing right granted with these files.
