UNIVERSAL has denied that it is planning to launch DRM-free tracks on APPLE's ITUNES, reports U.K. website POCKET-LINT. "The rumor is completely untrue," SVP PETER LOFRUMENTO told reporter STUART MILES.
Rumors surfaced on the internet on last week that UNIVERSAL may soon be joining EMI and releasing its songs DRM-free to online music stores like APPLE at ITUNES PLUS tracks.
Earlier this month, APPLE allowed its shoppers to buy DRM-free tracks for a premium on its online music store, however ran into criticism for encoding users name and account email details into each music file purchased so it can track those who share songs excessively.
