Plays No More: Virgin closes downloads service

Virgin is canning its windows media music download service, phasing it out over the next month. Oh, that does mean, of course, if you've been subscribing rather than buying, your music collection will stop working on October 19th. Surprise!

Which could be an illustration of exactly what people warned you about when you were thinking of hiring instead of buying outright.

The company has, however, apologised for "any inconvenience" that having your carefully-assembled music collection vanish might cause.

XRRF readers are, of course, are far too lovely and smart to have bought music on subscription. Their less lovely, not quite so clever chums might like to google "FairUse4WM" and use it to strip the DRM from their tunes.
