DRM-Free Easy iTunes Upgrades

Hopefully this will be handled easily. I have a few EMI tracks, but I'd like to be offered the chance to seamlessly "upgrade" to the higher-quality, DRM-free versions.

Consumers who have already purchased standard tracks or albums with DRM will be able to upgrade their digital music for $0.30 per track. All EMI music videos will also be available on the iTunes Store DRM-free with no change in price.

I'd also like my existing tracks to be replaced, and the play counts, ratings, etc. to be preserved.

  1. From Apple:

    iTunes will also offer customers a simple, one-click option to easily upgrade their entire library of all previously purchased EMI content to the higher quality DRM-free format for 30 cents a song. All EMI music videos will also be available in DRM-free format with no change in price.

    Looks like it could work really well.
