DRM-free EMI music in iTunes

Apple_EMI_DRM 4.07This is a bit off-topic but potentially a huge watershed in music industry. Apple and EMI announced today that they will offer DRM-free, 256kbps AAC encoded music in iTunes starting in May. The better quality (instead of the usual DRM’d 128kbps AAC) costs a bit more (30c/song in US) and you can upgrade your existing music for the difference.
