7Digital Sees Sales Spike From DRM-Free Majors Catalogs

LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — UK online music service 7digital.com has reported a major increase in sales after Warner and EMI started selling DRM-Free music on the site.

According to Reuters,, the download service has seen a sales bump of as much as 300% compared to the previous year's Q2 earnings.

"High-quality, DRM-free MP3 downloads have really sparked a new wave of digital music take up," said 7Digital CEO Ben Drury.

This success has reportedly attracted the attention of the other majors as well with similar deals with Vivendi and Sony-BMG expected by the end of the year.

"It is now clear that MP3 downloads represent the future for digital music," comments CEO Ben Drury, "With two of the four major labels now supporting MP3 in the U.K., we expect to see the whole market supporting MP3 in the not-too-distant future." – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
