Warner announced that it intends to sell music from some of its artists across Europe without any added DRM. The lack of DRM on the tracks will allow the music to be played on almost any MP3 player on the market.

The first site to offer the DRM-free tracks from Warner will be 7digital.com. Warner has a deal in place with Amazon in the US that allows buyers to get Warner tracks in MP3 format. BBC News reports that the Amazon service is planned to be rolled out in other countries soon.

7Digital.com is also reported to be in talks with Sony BMG and Universal for digital tracks as well. BBC News quotes James Bates from research firm Deloitte as saying, “Today's announcement may be a tipping point in the general move to DRM-free data.”
