eMusic and AT&T on verge of DRM-free mobile download service

eMusic and AT&T on verge of DRM-free mobile download service AT&T and eMusic are planning on launching a mobile download service, one that should be significant for its industry.
Beginning at the end of this month, the service will allow customers to download five tracks per month at a set price of $7.49. What makes the new service special is that the tracks will most likely be DRM-free. Most current mobile services have DRM that makes it almost impossible to copy the files to other devices, even your PC. A DRM-free service would most likely attract customers tired of the restrictions of the competition.

There is however, like always, a catch. The only compatible phones at the moment are the Samsung A707, A717, A727 and the Nokia N75.

very true. I will await the newer monopolized version of that company in the future. We already have like 30 sub versions from them in the past.

I don't like how they say most likely. That does not sound very promising.
