This reminds me of an article that makes the round today [1]:


'iPod users steal music' - Real boss

Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser thinks iPod users are stealing music.

,----[ Quote ]
>Speaking with The Guardian, he said: "If you want interoperable music today, 
| there is a very easy solution: it's called stealing. The average number of 
| songs sold for the iPod is 25, and there are many more songs on iPods than 
| 25. About half the music on iPods is music obtained illegitimately either 
| from an illegal peer-to-peer networks or from ripping friends' CDs, which
| is  illegal," he claimed.  

John hates the iPod though. I believe he is a Rhapsody/non-iPod man.
