EMI is just the first, according to Jobs. He said Apple expects well over half of the songs on the iTunes Store to be DRM-free by the end of the calendar year.

“EMI has taken the first bold step in the music industry and starting today Apple will reach out to all the other major and independent labels to give them the same opportunity,” said Jobs.

lots of people said that Steve should put his music store whre his mouth is eariler this year when he said apple supported DRM-free music, well here it is. ( i just hope the iPod still sells like hotcakes, I have Apple stock to think about ;))
