+ - Steve Jobs comments on DRM policy

Submitted by Frankenbuffer
Frankenbuffer writes: Steve Jobs has posted (http://www.apple.com/hotnews/thoughtsonmusic/) an interesting letter with his thoughts on DRM and how Apple has played a part in it. He examines the current situation in the industry and proposes three possible alternatives for the future. From the letter:

The first alternative is to continue on the current course, with each manufacturer competing freely with their own "top to bottom" proprietary systems for selling, playing and protecting music. The second alternative is for Apple to license its FairPlay DRM technology to current and future competitors with the goal of achieving interoperability between different company's players and music stores.
The third alternative is to abolish DRMs entirely.

 

The major difference between bonds and bond traders is that the bonds will eventually mature.
