Thoughts on DRM

Steve Jobs: Thoughts on Music.

This is really about DRM, as John Gruber points out.

It's not promising, but it would be nice if the music labels would take Jobs up on his offer to support unencumbered music in the iTunes store.

I have never purchased anything from the iTunes store, and I never will as long as the songs have any kind of DRM. I don't have time to search out songs on BitTorrent or what have you, so I either buy CDs, listen to the radio, or go without. Call me old fashioned.

But the convience of the iTunes store, plus a standard, open format...that would be tempting.
