SonyBMG To Sell Music in Amazon Store
Confirming what had been rumored since it announced it was dropping DRM last week, the music industry conglomerate SonyBMG announced Thursday that it will begin selling its product digitally on Amazon.com, the New York Times reported.
The megalabel’s entire catalog will be included in the deal, and should be available on the site by the end of January.
With the move, the music of Bruce Springsteen, Justin Timberlake, and numerous other artists will become available in Amazon’s music store. Sony becomes the fourth of the music industry’s “Big Four” to both drop DRM and join the Amazon store, joining Universal Music Group, EMI Group and Warner Music Group.
