Opening up your music.

Jon Johansen, the man who cracked DVD encryption, has now cracked iTunes encyption, which means that you can now play songs that you legally purchased on devices other than the iPod.

Now I love my iPod, and I’m not about to purchase a different device. But if I’ve paid for a song, then I believe that I have the right to listen to that song wherever I want, on any device I choose.

Digital Rights Management, or DRM, does not keep music from being stolen. It merely limits what an honest customer can do with something they purchased in good faith. That isn’t good for anyone, and it just isn’t fair.
