Napster Launches New DRM-Free Store

Napster now boasts what it calls the “world’s largest and most comprehensive MP3 store” anywhere.

The online music seller has just launched its new DRM-free MP3 database, meaning the songs will be compatible with most any software, phone, or playing device.

“Music fans have spoken and it’s clear they need the convenience, ease of use and broad interoperability of the DRM-free MP3 format, and they want to be able to find both major label artists and independent music all in one place,” said Napster Chairman and CEO Chris Gorog.

Napster says its new store is more than one-and-a-half times the size of any other online retailer, with more than six million tracks up for grabs. Songs are available for $.99 a piece or about $10 for an entire album.
