The future of DRM - Jessica Simpson?!?

Image:The future of DRM - Jessica Simpson?!?As reported on the BBC Website:

"Internet company Yahoo has released its first music download from a major record label without copy protection.


A Public Affair by Jessica Simpson does not have any digital rights management (DRM) restrictions often found on tracks from other sites."


Is it just me, or shouldn't we just all rush out and buy this on principal?

A Yahoo spokesman said:

"Our position is simple: DRM doesn't add any value for the artist, label (who are selling DRM-free music every day - the Compact Disc), or consumer, the only people it adds value to are the technology companies who are interested in locking consumers to a particular technology platform."


Never a truer word spoken. Support this album, support Yahoo...boycott iTunes.
