Yahoo working out plans to offer DRM free MP3 downloads Yahoo is reportedly working on a plan to launch a MP3 download service some time this year. The company is apparently engaged in preliminary talks with the major music labels, but still hasn't decided if their service will offer music for free, or as ad-supported downloads.
According to Yahoo spokeswoman Carrie Davis the company has added discussion of DRM free downloads to their regular dialog with the labels. They already have an ongoing relationship, in part due to their existing free and subscription based Streaming music services. Last year they indicated they were planning to move away from their commercial offerings in favor of expanded ad-support.

Yahoo also entered into a deal last year that allows Sony properties to be used by users to create content for various Yahoo services and portals. In exchange, Sony shares in the ad revenue generated.
