Nokia Music Becomes DRM Free – Turns Into Ovi Music In The Process

I have just received an awesome email from the Nokia India Music store with the much awaited news that Nokia Music is finally going DRM free and that it will soon merge into the Ovi brand. The email carries no specific date for the transition to occur, we can only hope it happens soon.

DRM free means that you can use the music you downloaded from the Nokia store on any device, be it your computer, mobile phone or mp3 player. After Ovi Maps going free, Nokia saw a lot of traction for the service. Will going DRM free do the same for ‘Ovi Music’? Time will tell.

Nokia is turning things around! This development also means that we should soon see Ovi Music support Macs and move away from the IE only interface, something that will make me and many others people happy.

Nokia Music will soon become Ovi Music. This means all the tracks you download will be DRM-free, MP3 files that you can now play on a PC, Mac or any personal music player! Plus, as part of the change to Ovi, we’ve enhanced our search capability so it’s easier than ever to find the music you want.

  2. Did you try with the letters OVI suffixed to your previous. This worked for me.

    (I am still experiencing downloading error for some songs – hopefully its is teething troubles)

  3. Not really a dupe, as this Ars story dug deeper into how Comes With Music actually works to find out it’s using PlaysForSure DRM—a system even Microsoft has all but abandoned. Customers get to keep the tracks after the one year is up, but they won’t work with a Zune, iPod or most other mobile phones.

  4. Usually I don’t read article on blogs, but I wish to say that this write-up very forced me to try and do it! Your writing taste has been amazed me. Thank you, quite nice post.
