Yahoo will close its music store on September 30, 2008.
"After the Store closes, Yahoo will no longer be able to support the retrieval of license keys for music purchased from Yahoo Music Unlimited, and Yahoo will no longer be able to authorize song playback on additional computers," the company said in a Thursday e-mail to customers.
So if you bought any DRM 'protected' songs at Yahoo: before your PC dies, you may want to burn the songs on a CD and rip it. All that just in order to listen to music you obtained in a legal way.
Yahoo will offer refunds to people who purchased individual tracks from Yahoo Music and who stand to lose access to that music when Yahoo Music is folded into Rhapsody in September.
"We always intended to provide refunds," said Carrie Davis, a spokeswoman for Yahoo! Music.
