Sony abolishes DRM’ed music tracks

As the last of the four big music companies, Sony BMG finally got rid of DRM’ed tracks. Instead they came up with a good new method to avoid music sales.

Found the following amusing description of their new method (which is real!):

We’re pleased to announce we are the final major music corporation to release electronic tracks without that pesky DRM! All you have to do is leave your house, go to a selected retail outlet, buy a special card there, go back to your house, scratch off the back of the card to find a code, go to our special MusicPass Web site, enter said code, and download one the 37 titles we have available, from Celine Dion to the Backstreet Boys!
