    Scheme indeed.
    I always worry that the mp3 I download may not be mp3-compatible. /sarcasm

    Um, it's pretty easy to tell. Itunes plus is DRM-free, and if you're downloading a wma, it probably has drm. Nice scheme to make money for nothing though, I'm sure a lot of people will buy into it.

    Still, call me when you've got FLAC. Till then I'll stick to cd's.

    surely a "DRM-free" logo would have made more sense?

    And then you'll have to explain what DRM is.

    This is more to do with file type than DRM. I know my Creative Zen won't play iTune files, but does Six-pack Joe (ooh, modern lingo!)? Nope.

    Thirded?

    Also it would be nice to maybe have a DRM free sort of logo for computer games so that I know that I can buy the game without researching to see if a root kit will force an unexpected reformat for my beloved HDD.

    I want a FLAC compatible logo!

    not hard at all. they must already store a CD quality version of their catalog to allow for easy bit-rate switching (ala itunes plus).
