Submission + - Steve Jobs writes about DRM

An anonymous reader writes: Apple Inc. has put a link on their front page to an essay by Steve Jobs on iTunes DRM. Jobs describes why iTunes uses DRM (the music industry required it), then goes on to state that DRM is (a) bad for consumers, and (b) useless anyway. Jobs concludes by urging consumers to pressure the music industry to end DRM requirements. Yay!
