Sony does not really understand DRM-free


Still have to go into a retail store

Sony's new 'DRM free' music system is attracting complaints because it is not really what Sony claims.

Users will be able to download just 37 albums DRM-free from Sony BMG starting Jan. 15th, but first they must go to a retail store and buy the $12.99 Platinum MusicPass. Once they have scratched off the card's covering to expose the code, they will be able to download one of just 37 albums available through the service.

It is hardly the DRM-free service being offered by rivals. It is only available from 4,500 retail outlets in the U.S.
