PLEASE: Before anyone and/or everyone gets bent out of shape in regards to the reported news that Apple is placing unencrypted watermarks in the form of your name and email address inside of the DRM-free tracks, please remember how big of a battle we all just won…
“Watermarking does not treat the consumer like a criminal,” Goodman said. “DRM is also restrictive, telling you how many times you can play a song or which device it can be played on. Watermarking works on the assumption that a consumer is innocent but provides the industry an opportunity to catch someone that breaks the law.”
… and then let it be. EMI is only the first of the majors to go DRM free. Let’s not scare the others away by taking things to the extreme.
Thanks in advance for your considerations!
