Does a downloaded file contain DRM?

    So far my system has been entirely DRM-free. I mostly rip my own CD's
    and occasionally download DRM-free tracks.

    In my search for one particularly obscure album, I've found it on an
    equally obscure download site that makes no reference to DRM, either for
    or against.

    So, If I download the album (and at $1.21 I don't have much to lose)
    then how can I tell whether or not it contains DRM?

    To be honest, I'd rather do without this album if it contains DRM, even
    though it is the highest rated album of one of my favourite artists.

    Thanks. I'll try that if I download the album. It can only be downloaded
    with their custom download program, and something in me keeps whispering
    "virus alert; caution required".
