DRM Free Music Continues

It seems every month another nail goes firmly into the Music DRM coffin.

This turn it Sony Ericsson who according to PC World relaunched its PlayNow mobile content store this week renaming it PlayNow Arena. The new store will distribute around 1 million DRM free tracks, which expected to soon increase to 5 million and joins iTunes and Amazon, among many others, now offering DRM free music.

The store also offers downloads of ring tones, games, themes, but unlike music, the games are still locked to the platform and can’t be transferred to another phone.

Interoperability problems between the various phones are sited as the drawback to the movement of games.
