The article reports that EMI has removed the antipiracy software, Digital Rights Management (DRM) from digital downloads, initiating higher quality and higher-priced music tracks. DRM has been used since the iTunes Store's inception in 2002 to limit the number of times a download can be copied. Lower quality downloads of EMI tracks with copying restrictions will still be sold on iTunes at a lower price.
