Até que enfim o Jobs percebeu que a DRM nao e boa coisa. E pediu
que as companias que distribuem musica o fizessem sem DRM.

Será que com essa iniciativa, agora, as empresas acatam?
Por enquanto um executivo da Yahoo ja se pronunciou favoravel.

Yahoo Music, SanDisk chiefs urge labels to 'ditch DRM'
The boss of Yahoo Music says that MP3 tracks sell much better than DRM-laden

Macworld staff

A senior Yahoo chief has spoken out in favour of Apple CEO Steve Jobs' call
for major labels to abandon digital rights technology (DRM).

Dave Goldberg, head of Yahoo Music, says that tracks sold through his
service in MP3 format sell much faster than rights-protected tunes.

Silicon Valley Watcher reports that Goldberg believes DRM is confusing for
consumers, also that the company has experimented by making music available
free of DRM, and tracks sold in this way see more sales.

Goldberg is also heavily critical of the DRM system Microsoft licenses for a
fee, saying it "doesn't work half the time".

The Yahoo boss believes that removing DRM would provide a boost to
interoperability and widen the range of music services and devices available
to consumers.

The Yahoo chief's thoughts were echoed by SanDisk founder and CEO Eli
Harari, who wrote: "Proprietary systems aren't acceptable to consumers. In
recent months, there has been a rising chorus of complaints in Europe about
the anti-competitive nature of closed formats that tie music purchased from
one company to that company's devices, and tie that company's devices to its
music service."


ps.: nao pus a "carta" de Steve Jobs porque e muito grande.
