The DRM-free music store was originally announced early in 2008, and has now launched as a major competitor to Apple iTunes.

The new Napster music store will feature all DRM-free MP3 files. This means that consumers will be able to take any of the MP3 files they purchase from Napster and use them on just about any portable device including an iPod Zune, PSP, cell phone, etc.

There are no restrictions with what you can do with the songs.

Napster is launching with the largest DRM-free library ever at 6 million songs, each selling for $0.99.

For the price point of $9.95, you will get a full DRM-free album.

Napster has positioned their music store to compete head to head with Apple iTunes and other online music store offerings. Only time will tell though if consumers come in support.
