Imagine a world where every online store sells DRM-free music encoded in open licensable formats. In such a world, any player can play music purchased from any store, and any store can sell music which is playable on all players. This is clearly the best alternative for consumers, and Apple would embrace it in a heartbeat.

Mark this day as the turning point in the DRM battle.

Additionally: how stupid does this make the NZ Copyright Amendment Bill look?? Don’t forget that submissions to the select committee close next Friday.
