Comment on "Apple on Music DRM"
by iPodJon — Feb 07
Try to download FCP without your serial number...
Or QuickTime Pro
Or swap your iPod games freely

You will notice that Jobs has not announced that all Pixar DVDs will be released without encryption or Macrovision. And yet DVDs are widely pirated.

The "overwhelming majority" of computer software is pirated too, that doesn't mean it's good business, or good eventually for customers, to release it in to the wild without DRM.

When Jobs comes out and says he opposes DRM itself, then that will be news. Otherwise, he's just trying to _sell_ something to you that he hasn't created, under the guise of simplifying things for the customer.
