Something happened around the time of TW3 extended soundtrack release. If I remember correctly, since then no Witcher music was released on GOG or any other DRM-free store. So it's clearly a company policy now, and a worrisome one, since they can't say "publisher demands it" or any other such thing if they own the music.Weren't the last Witcher soundtracks made available on GOG? Yeah, I'd rather buy it there. Seems odd not to provide it DRM free.
A dedicated thread about it: http://forums.cdprojektred.com/threads/90721-CDPR-and-stance-on-DRMSo I guess every person here is asking for the exact same thing, and gonna keep it flowing until they release it.
I'd rephrase it. Spotify is based on subscription / renting and limiting access (DRM). Streaming shouldn't be confused with it (for some reason it often is). To clarify what I mean. Streaming is simply a convenience. I.e. you might want to stream some media from the cloud server without need to store it on your device permanently. Like Youtube allows for example. Streaming does not imply that one has to forbid to store the data it if user wants it. I.e. some store can as well offer streaming as convenience, and ability to store the file DRM-free in order to play it any way user wants (without any DRM "apps" attached). In fact Bandcamp do exactly that for music. They give you both streaming and downloading for your purchases.Well, Spotify's standard version is for free. If you go premium, you get a few bonuses like better music quality, no commercials inside the app or ability to DL tracks and listen while offline(but still inside Spotify app). But as it's based on streaming, it's not really about "owning" the music.
