Jobs Thoughts on DRM

This is kind of amazing to hear from the CEO of Apple considering how successful they have been at selling DRM protected music. It’s nice to see such a clear message from a company that they are willing and ready to embrace the inevitable change in the industry.

Essentially the gist of the article is that Apple sells DRM protected music through the iTunes Store because they are required to by the four major music companies. Jobs expresses his belief that it would be best for everyone, especially consumers, if the major music companies were to allow their music to be sold online free of DRM protection.
