Apple made available on iTunes what is called "iTunes Plus", enabling people to buy DRM-free content. "iTunes Plus" is accessible in Europe as well.

To compensate the fact that this content is no longer copy-protected, it'll cost you 30% higher than DRM-ed content, at 1.29€ a song.

As a positvie consequence, you'll get better encoding: 256 kbits/s (128kbits/s formerly)

At the moment, only EMI content is available on the platform but Steve Jobs stated he will make his best to convert other majors and independant labels to iTunes Plus.

Additionnaly, Apple created iTunes U (U stands for university) which contains copyright free content, such as university lectures and others materials, all published by Stanford, Berkeley and Duke universities and MIT.
