Apple announced yesterday at the Macworld Expo that it is dropping the copy protection placed on songs in the iTunes music inventory.
The copying restrictions, which confined downloaded music only to iPod music players and limited transferring tunes from one computer to another, will be completely lifted by the end of March, according to Philip W. Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of worldwide product marketing.

In addition, iTunes will also offer songs at variable prices, a change from the previously fixed cost of 99 cents per song. Tunes will now be available for prices ranging between 69 cents and $1.29, with pricing based on the demand for the songs.

These changes came after a deal was reached between Apple and the Universal Music Group, Sony BMG and the Warner Music Group. Per Paste Magazine.
