Here is the story on TG Daily http://www.tgdaily.com/content/view/39505/98/. It would seems that DRM sucks for the customer and doesn't stop the pirates. Since even Microsoft stopped supporting PlayForSure and has turned off the MSN Music DRM servers I would have to say this proves one thing. Only a fool buys DRMed media from Microsoft. Frankly it looks like DRMed media in general is just a really bad idea."
