DRM-Free not cheap

Does Apple know we're in a recession? I've just seen the option to "upgrade" my library and it comes to just over ?141 (about $220). Guess I could do it track by track or album by album depending on finances. The message says "special offer" but doesn't mention a time limit, only that the list will be updated (presumably because not every album is DRM-free at the moment).

Anyone know if this is time limited and who's got the most expensive upgrade?

From what I understand there is no time limit. In the new Keynote it was mentioned that all of the music on itunes will be offered drm-free through itunes-plus within the next 5 months or so.

It's $0.30 a track. Apple had to give something to the music industry for DRM free tunes. That's why I still buy CDs and copy them at a higher bit rate than what they offer.

On the day it was announced, I had 88 tracks to upgrade. This has now risen to over 100 so I doubt I'll be giving my hard earned money to Apple just yet.

I really can't justify paying more money for something that I already purchased. I'll just burn my collection to discs and rip them back onto my computer.

I've lost interest in upgrading my library as I only use an iPod and iPhone so there's no real point in paying over ?300 to Apple if there are no real benefits.
