Nokia breaks up Digital Rights Management music locks
The manufacturer does not currently allow tracks bought from its music store to be transferred between handsets, frustrating users who upgrade their phones.
The removal of Digital Rights Management (DRM) has been secured after negotiations with record labels.
Adam Mirabella, director of global digital music retail for Nokia, said to Channel News Asia: ‘We have dialogues going with all of our partners and DRM-free is also on the roadmap for the future integration of Comes With Music.’
The news follows Vodafone’s recent announcement that its users can now download DRM-free tracks from its music service.
