The Orange Music Store, which allows audio to be downloaded for use with the latest phones, will now feature songs free from Digital Rights Management (DRM) technology.

It was explained by the firm this means playlists will be easier to manage and tracks can be transferred between mobiles, computers and mp3 players with less hassle.

DRM-free music will now feature on the web-based portal from large international labels such as Universal and EMI Music, as well as a number of independent providers - adding up to more than 700,000 songs.

Paul Jevons, director of products, portals and services for Orange, said the move was reflective of the carrier's commitment to providing the best and most versatile content possible.

"Upgrading the Music Portal and introducing DRM-free music helps customers enjoy music how and when they want. We look forward to enhancing the DRM-free music catalogue over the coming months," he added.
