I like that article alot. Thx for linking to it. I think he's right. DRM is a lost cause. It basicly inconveniences paying customers without stopping piracy.
I don't buy CDs anymore because I'm fed up with all the lame attempts at peddling "copy controlled" (read: non standard) CDs. My solution is simple: I keep my money and listen to the CDs I already have. I put up with it being expensive (A full price CD in Sweden
is about $25. And still I bought alot of CDs!). But I will not put up with it not working in the CD player of my choice!
