Microsoft just announced that it will no longer supply authorization keys for songs purchased from the defunct MSN Music service.

So all yooz PlaysForSure users that purchased music through them, those tunes will only play on your registered computers (up to 5)…forever! This maneuver also locks the registered PC into whatever OS it's running, so any major OS update or switch would zap all your music into oblivion.

"If you attempt to transfer your songs to additional computers after August 31, 2008, those songs will not successfully play," said Microsoft in a press release.

Damn you Microsoft!!! Daaaaamn yoooou!
