Amazon.com Takes MP3 Store Worldwide

Seattle Amazon.com said Sunday it will begin an international rollout this year of its digital-music store that offers songs without copy-protection technology known as digital-rights management (DRM).

Amazon said it is the only retailer to offer DRM-free MP3s from all four major music labels, as well as thousands of independent labels.

Amazon MP3, launched in September 2007, offers DRM-free MP3 music downloads, which now includes more than 3.3 million songs.
