Amazon Now Offers Warner DRM-Free Downloads (AMZN) has added DRM free downloads from Warner Music Group to its MP3 store, something Apple is yet to offer on its iTunes music store. With 2.9 million songs available for download, the Amazon MP3 store is a very legitimate player in the digital music business, and a true competitor to Apple, which has 5.5 million songs available but majority are protected by Apple’s own DRM.

I liked the download service when it first launched, and have often bought music from them, though it still doesn’t come close to the convenience and ease of use of the Apple’s iTunes.
