iTunes Pricing Changes

Apple iTunes Pricing Changes

According to the Wall Street Journal, Apple has decided to make some major changes to its pricing of music on iTunes.

  1. Three tiered pricing: instead of a flat 99 cents per song, songs will be 69/99/1.29. Apple claims most songs will be 69 cents.
  2. They are going to eliminate copy protection for all songs in their digital store.


Personally, I love iTunes. In all but a few cases, I do not want to pay for a entire CD and I certainly do not want to store anymore of them. By offering songs for $.99, iTunes allowed me to legally purchase music at a price I feel is reasonable.
