With word that EMI will now be selling DRM-free songs on iTunes for a premium ($1.29 per DRM-free song v $0.99 per crippled song), I should be rejoicing, yes?
I mean, who doesn't want to be able to buy a song online and do with it whatever you want? right?
But still, something's sticking in my craw. Apple's the one who takes the original file and then alters it with their DRM code. Kinda like the oil refineries add lead to the gasoline they make.
And then I, the consumer, pay extra for them to take it right back out again so I can fuel up with "unleaded" gas. Blech.
