Wal Mart decides to keep DRM Servers

Those rumors that went on about last week of Wal Mart keeping their DRM servers appear to be true. In an email sent out to Wal Mart Music store customers, Wal Mart stated that they will be keeping the DRM servers online for the time being, Customer Support will also be available to help customers with DRM tracks.

"Based on feedback from our customers, we have decided to maintain our digital rights management (DRM) servers for the present time." Wal Mart said. "What this means to you is that our existing service continues and there is no action required on your part."

Hopefully this will cost them a fair bit of money in the long run, so other companies realise that DRM isn't worth it, even to them.

DRM needs to die and Wal-Mart could've helped. Ah well. ^_^ I don't buy my music online anyways (and i nthe rare cases I do, I use eMusic or Amazon...).

Interesting. Especially since every album I've bought from there was uncensored.

Their CDs used to all be censored... believe it or not..
