Nov 20, 2008 vikings axe WMA

Following in the footsteps of US behemoth Walmart, the largest E-retailer in Scandinavia - - has decided to drop the DRM-ridden Windows Media Audio (WMA) format for digital music downloads.

Indeed, CDON announced today that the 2.5 million tracks present on their Finnish store will be available in the MP3 format. Says CDON CEO Mikael Olander: "it's only with legal workable alternatives we can prohibit illegal downloads and so far the music industry have been way to slow".

Vikings never disappoint. Well done.
