DRM-free music sold on Yahoo

(Thanks to León Sánchez Ambía for the link). This is a very interesting new development in the DRM front. Yahoo is selling the new song by Jessica Simpson as an MP3 unencumbered with technical protection measures. This is quite a development, as all the songs sold in iTunes have some form of restrictive DRM protection or other.

The song is more expensive to the DRM alternative ($2 USD as opposed to $1), but you can customise the file and it plays everywhere.

There seems to be a definite swing against DRM in the public, although I still believe that not enough people care.

One thing though, who in their right mind would want to buy a song by Jessica Simpson?
