As we suspected, iTunes will finally go DRM free. Every song will now be 256 kbps AAC encoding as opposed to 128-bit. You can upgrade your entire purchased library to iTunes plus. This will all be in place by the end of the first quarter of 2009. They are also allowing music labels to price their own music as they see fit, which makes labels happy, but not all of us. Either way this is great news, as we no longer have to deal with DRM on music we legitimately paid for.
