An interesting rumor is making the rounds today that claims Amazon is set to launch a new service called auto rip . According to sources who claim to be familiar with Amazon's plans, Amazon would provide free digital versions of every song on a physical CD that a user purchases. The songs would be placed in the user's digital cloud locker at no additional cost.
Even more interesting than the fact that Amazon is considering giving users free digital versions of tracks purchased on physical CDs is the fact that Amazon is that to be offering these free digital versions for CDs that people bought in the past. Amazon has been one of the largest online sellers of CDs for a number of years. If it offered free digital versions of music that people purchased in the past, it would be providing a huge number of digital songs.
The move is expected to be similar to what Hollywood is doing with UltraViolet. The user would purchase a physical CD of their favorite artist or group and they would get digital versions of all the tracks available at no additional cost that can be accessed using Amazon's cloud service from compatible mobile devices. There has been no official announcement from Amazon at this time.
