Wal-Marts had decided to get rid of DRM all together which is a great thing but may leave some early customers quite angry

Wal-Mart decides to shut down its DRM servers for the old music service.  This sounds great and is great...for new customers.  But what about early adopters of this store?

If they do not backup their purchased songs before October 9th, they will be "up the creek without a paddle".  Then they would have no choice but to keep those songs on the same PC.  They even have to keep the same OS (sorry reformats are out of the question).
