iTunes and EMI - Downloads without DRM

Rumors had been floating around for the past month or so that EMI would make the move and sell their catalog without any DRM system. As the owner of the Beatles catalog this was especially exciting as to date no Beatles tracks have been legally downloadable.
Apple and EMI announced today that the iTunes music site will now carry the full EMI catalog, with the sad exception of the Beatles, without any DRM attached. This only makes sense as the major labels have no problem selling physical CDs which don't have any DRM!

Additional details are HERE.
