    I don't think he's wanted DRM to begin with but I bet this was inspired more from the problems in Europe than a sudden urge to set things straight.

    It's encouraging though. I'm not sure whether it'll hinder or help getting lossless material on iTunes... they'll probably be even MORE reluctant to allow putting up lossless when it's unprotected but I think his point is valid that they need to stop pretending that importing a CD onto the computer is any real hurdle that online downloads suddenly eliminates and makes it easier for people to pirate or anything.

    I've grown tired of people bitching about it when it isn't Apple's fault.

    Here's hoping that this will be the beginning of truly interoperable music destinations.

    Sorry for trip-posting...

    Just wanted to ask Randy if the March album releases will be the first Disney DRM-free iTunes albums. Disney's been Apple's pioneering partner for some time (TV shows, movies, etc) and I was wondering if this trend would continue with Mr. Jobs's new DRM-free initiative. Plus, if the DRM-less tracks sell MORE, the RIAA and the music industry would SURELY stand up and take notice.
