Amazon to sell music without copy restrictions

Reuters:
Amazon.com said on Wednesday the company will launch a digital music store later in 2007 with millions of songs, free of copy protection technology that limits where consumers can play their music.

The Seattle-based company said music company EMI, home to artists ranging from Coldplay to Norah Jones to Joss Stone to Pink Floyd, has licensed its digital catalog to Amazon, the second such deal in a month.

"Our MP3-only strategy means all the music that customers buy on Amazon is always DRM-free and plays on any device," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com founder and CEO.
I guess this means that Amazon is the second EMI DRM-free music licensee. But Amazon is going to use MP3, which is wonderful, given it's compatibility with every single device on the market.
