Apple goes DRM ( Digital Rights Management) free! (on music at least)

A major victory in the campaign to eliminate DRM -- Apple, the last
major retailer of DRM-encumbered music has announced, live at
MacWorld, that iTunes music will be going DRM-free.

Of course, what this really makes clear is that this was never about
the record companies withholding DRM-free music from Apple, but rather
that Apple was unwilling to concede a tiered pricing structure to the
recording companies. In the end, anti-DRM activists -- including
yourself -- were able to educate the public enough to pressure Apple
to give in.
