Steve, DRM, and the Free World

rails against DRM on Salon this morning, saying that it’s basically a tax against future hardware purchases. The reasoning is fairly simple: the more 99 cent tracks you buy, the harder it will be to get rid of your Zune or your iPod or your FrankoMP3eo 2007.

This line of argument is fairly cogent but the article says little new. It is, however, nice to hear from Cory’s other personality, the rock hard copyfightin’ advocate with nary a flame-throwing robot reference to be found. I’d say check it out, but the article is all DRMed up.
