    This is great news! I'd prefer unrestricted AAC format (for the better sound quality), but this is still wonderful news.

    I hope people buy the songs, and encourage the labels to release more material like this. Although DRM will probably never be completely eliminated, this news may be the first step on the road to phasing it out.

    As for those who think this will result in piracy, I doubt it. Most stuff currently traded on file-sharing networks is ripped from CDs. So an unrestricted MP3 release shouldn't change very much.
