Here‘s wisdom from the CEO of the world’s largest software company:
“Billing Microsoft as the good guys and Apple the villains of the piece – at least as far as corporate America, rather than users, is concerned, Ballmer said: “We’ve had DRM in Windows for years. The most common format of music on an iPod is ‘stolen’.”
“Part of the reason people steal music is money, but some of it is that the DRM stuff out there has not been that easy to use. We are going to continue to improve our DRM, to make it harder to crack, and easier, easier, easier, easier, to use,” he said. “
Let me rephrase that: If DRM were easier to use, people would not steal music???
And, concerning that iPod content (which is the same argument as here): Feel free to visit me and I’ll show you my 850+ CD collection – I have no problems filling a 40 Gig iPod without a single stolen song.
