Walmart Does An About Turn On DRM Server Shutdown

Walmart made an announcement at the end of last month that it would be shutting down its DRM servers, which was planned to come into effect yesterday. The recommendation made back then was for customers with DRM tracks to burn them to CD to enable them to continue to be played on various platforms. Walmart has now announced that it will be keeping its DRM servers operational for the foreseeable future (however long that may be), which means customers with DRM protected files will still have support from its customer service team. The recommendation to burn your tracks to CD still stands however, so I wouldn't expect that support to be there for an awful lot longer.
