I agree that we have to fight DRM, but what the heck is wrong these people? Indeed it’s not cool that you have to buy an iPod and not another other mp3 player to take the music you purchased with you, but then why don’t they give their action group another name, for example “Fight Apple” or something similar. It’s total bullshit to make Apple the scapegoat for digital rights management. They let the Apple politics on DRM appear as the worst case possible, but, honestly, is it so atrocious letting end-user burn the song to a cd only five times? How many copies do you need? And really, it seems to be no big deal to bypass Apple’s FairPlay technology with iTunes itself (apparently directions can even be found on wikipedia as I just noticed).
Alright, calm down and don’t get me wrong, I’m no fan at all of DRM, I’m just saying if you want to fight it, don’t concentrate on one “big enemy”, because that would only result in an irrational witch-hunt and not solve the problem – on the contrary it would leave enough time to the underestimated rest of the industry (for example Microsoft, who let DRM appear as the best invention ever made) to push the development of DRM further.
