Steve Jobs : "DRMs are evil"

Apple's boss just published a letter on the Apple website, explaining why DRMs are bad for the consumers.

The funny part is that, not only Apple uses DRMs (ironically called FairPlay) for his iTunes/iPod combo, but they also refuse to sell this technology to other companies. Wanna listen to some music downloaded on iTunes ? Ok, but you can only use iPods. That's very "FairPlay", indeed.

The story is too old to be commented.

so he doesn't want people to buy Itunes??

I don't like DRM either, but that's business. If everything was open source musicians, cd factories, publicists, and others would be out of a job.

This is called, "having your cake and eating it too."
Jobs is very good at it.
