One service that many Nokia customers are used to getting with their phones is Ovi Music Unlimited, a service that allows free music downloads and is backed by some major players like Vivendi's Universal Music, EMI, Warner Music Group and Sony. Well, it seems the service isn't as popular as Nokia would like and it is being cut from most worldwide markets.
Apparently the fact that the music had DRM that locked any music that was downloaded to that specific device doesn't go over very well with customers, especially with so many other DRM-free options available. Brazil, China, India, Indonesia, Turkey and South Africa are among the markets that will still have the service available. Current users in markets that are losing the service will still have access to downloaded tracks, and Nokia's music store will still be available for those who want to download DRM-free tunes.
