Sem dúvida, os que militam pelo fim do DRM (Digital Rights Management) — dentre os quais eu me incluo — ganharam, nesta semana, um aliado de peso: Steve Jobs. Vejam o que diz em seu último post, dentre outras coisas, o CEO da Apple:
Much of the concern over DRM systems has arisen in European countries. Perhaps those unhappy with the current situation should redirect their energies towards persuading the music companies to sell their music DRM-free. For Europeans, two and a half of the big four music companies are located right in their backyard. The largest, Universal, is 100% owned by Vivendi, a French company. EMI is a British company, and Sony BMG is 50% owned by Bertelsmann, a German company. Convincing them to license their music to Apple and others DRM-free will create a truly interoperable music marketplace. Apple will embrace this wholeheartedly.
