Vodafone is marking the launch of DRM-free downloads on its UK network by designating 5th June as ‘Free Music Friday’. Eight free tracks will be available to Vodafone customers tomorrow.
Vodafone’s decision to remove Digital Rights Management from downloads on the Vodafone Music Store means that customers can copy music between their music phones, PCs and MP3 players (subject to standard copyright rules, naturally). 350,000 unlocked tracks will initially be available, with over a million planned by the end of the summer. Prices for downloads cost from 49p per track and £7.99 per album. Customers who’ve previously bought DRM-locked music will be able to download the unlocked tracks free.
Tomorrow’s free downloads are:
- Ciara featuring Justin Timberlake - Love Sex Magic;
- Daniel Merriweather – Change ;
- Lady GaGa – Poker Face ;
- Lily Allen – Not Fair (Style Of Eye remix);
- Pixie Lott – Rolling Stone;
- Simple Minds – Rockets;
- Tinchy Stryder feat N-Dubz – Number 1;
- Clubbers Guide 2009 Mixtape
