Second biggest on-line music store is DRM-free

Boing Boing is reporting that the world's second-biggest seller of legal on-line music is entirely DRM free.

USA Today is surprised at eMusic's success, given that the major labels refuse to licence their "big hits" to them. That means no Shakira, Beyoncé or U2 -- but plenty of jazz, classical and indie music: Johnny Cash, Ray Charles, Credence Clearwater Revival, Miles Davis, Van Morrison, Moby, the White Stripes, Diana Krall, Scott H. Biram, the Pipettes, Dashboard Confessional and Peaches.
