It’s baaaack

But it’s a wan version of its former self.

Napster plans to challenge Apple’s iTunes (reg. req’d.) with an MP3 store of its own:

“The store will feature MP3s without digital rights management software at a price point of 99 cents a track, or $9.95 for most albums. While the MP3 store will have DRM-free tracks, users of Napster’s subscription service still have the various restrictions associated with that service.”

In other news, record companies announced they’ve found a solution to the digital revolution and they way it’s eaten their lunch: putting their fingers in their ears and mumbling, “Nyah, nyah, nyah, I can’t hear you!”

DRM sucks.
