Apple - Thoughts on Music


(Click the Apple to see the article)

Today Steve Jobs posted a blog-type entry on Apple's website about his thoughts on digital rights management and music sharing. In the current digital rights management (DRM) system encoded into iTunes music, the files can only be played on iPod's and iTunes software. But many people are complaining about this. They want to buy their 99 cent songs and be able to share them with their friends or play them on any computer/CD player. Well, this is a problem. It turns out the big music companies don't want that, and only allow iTunes to share music as long as DRM is in place.

In his article, Steve Jobs makes some very convincing arguments as to why DRM should be abolished. I totally agree.

Read the article by clicking on the above Apple Logo. It's damn good.
