Jobs Calls for the End of DRM
Steve Jobs wants the music industry to sell music without restrictions. I can’t agree with this idea more. Restrictions on digital media like music and books can only serve to inhibit the growth of e media.
“Imagine a world where every online store sells DRM-free music encoded in open licensable formats,” he writes. “In such a world, any player can play music purchased from any store, and any store can sell music which is playable on all players. This is clearly the best alternative for consumers, and Apple would embrace it in a heartbeat.”
