    Surprise surprise! :D
    tbh, why would you bother downloading free music with DRM added when you can have free music without, just as easily if not more, and without the restrictions of it not working on your portable audio device of choice?

    That's exactly the problem though.
    Until the 'big four' realise that we music lovers want to listen to the music on our own terms, on our own choice of player at a fair price, they're never gonna get anywhere in the fight against piracy.

    This is how I see it. There was going to be free music and videos which is always good. There was also going to be DRM which is bad. There are plenty of programs however which will remove DRM from music, which is good.

    So you legally download music and no one is going to hunt you down. Then, you have the option (depending on your moral stance) to remove the DRM in order to use the music on your portable player. At that point, no one will know, so who's to stop you?
