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.
- 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.
- 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.
