Comment on "Apple on Music DRM"
by iPodJon — Feb 07
OK, let's switch this around and see if we come to the same conclusions.

Can you imagine Steve Jobs' reaction to Sony announcing that they'd love to publish Final Cut Pro (or other Apple software) on behalf of Apple, without any DRM?

Jobs would have a spluttering fit.

Jobs can say these convenient things, appealing to our grabby natures (who doesn't want things for free?) because he doesn't create the music. He has no risk, no downside in this.

This sort of PR posturing will only bite Apple in the end. If I can have my music without DRM (i.e. it's essentially free in a technical sense) then why not my production suite or my QuickTime Pro?
