If you can watch/listen to it, it's out. It's a cat out of the bag, that will
sooner or later be captured and then distributed without the shackles. Apple
are trying to comply with demands of the brands in attempts to drive prices
down. In turn, they punish some innocent users and achieve nothing. The
industry will wake up to realise that CD/DVD sales continue to slide.
People's iPods will be loaded up with pirated data, largely. It's all just a
big fat placebo.
