An excellent summary of why DRM is not the answer or panacea that the record industry thinks it is from Carlo Longino at MobHappy. The main point, which I’ve been moaning on about anyway, is that DRM doesn’t serve to protect anyone and frankly is a damn liberty to dictate where and how a person might listen to music from a CD or digital music service.

Thanks again to Om Malik for picking this one up.

Here’s the first of a two-part piece in UK MacUser, looking at digital downloads. And in this first piece, focusing on DRM and people’s attitudes to it – backed by a 1,000-person survey.
