iTunes supposedly DRM-free music not so DRM-free?

If you follow the digital music business at all, then you know by now that earlier this year, Apple CEO Steve Jobs issued a clarion call (ok, an open letter) to the entertainment confab to free digital content of any digital rights management (DRM) technology: the technology that, in the course of trying to prevent piracy of content, also prevents honest people like you and me from moving iTunes-bought music from an Apple iPod to a non-Apple MP3 player (that's just one example).

Parsing the future of DRM and Internet-based media delivery and monetization

Digital rights management is doing well. It’s alive and healthy. There was a general concern a few years back that the consumers wouldn’t adapt to paper-media-type experience online, and I think the ubiquitous nature of the iPod has proved that wrong. There are a lot of other great devices that are coming out, or have come out, with really solid content protection schemes in place that the studios are comfortable with.

With Microsoft sucked into a DRM cat-n-mouse deathmatch, is Zune doomed?

While I was away on vacation, I caught George Ou's blog on how Microsoft's digital rights management (DRM) copy protection technology (currently, the lynch-pin to its PlaysForSure ecosystem, and undoubtedly a foundational piece to its new iPod-killing Zune initiative) had been rendered useless by developers of the FairUse4WM "utility." FairUse4M strips copy-protected Windows Media content of its copy protection and  could bring down a very large house of cards at Microsoft.

iPod avoids guillotine in France

CNET's Estelle Dumout and Jo Best are covering the French anti-iPod law gyrations: France's controversial copyright law, which had threatened to mandate interoperability between Apple Computer and rival online music players' digital rights management, has been dealt a major setback as sections of the legislation are being ruled unconstitutional.

Music vendors versus France

France is proposing to legalize transcoding between audio formats, including those protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM). I say, don't sweat the little stuff. This proposal won't have much effect on the state of the digital music industry.

Why an open standard for DRM won't prevent the DRM trainwreck

If you've been following my various rantings on this blog, particularly the ones about file formats (OpenDocument Format vs. Microsoft's Office XML-based formats) or digital restrictions management (DRM) [sic], or a lot of what I've written over the last five years about open standards and intellectual property, then you'll know that for the benefit of technology buyers (ZDNet's audience), I'm a strong advocate of open standards.

XML as document format rules!!!

George Ou thinks XML is an inefficient and unnecessary replacement for binary file formats. John Carroll disagrees, arguing that XML is the lego approach to managing data, and offers advantages in small-to-medium sized data management situations.

Rupert Goodwins' Diary

Thursday 16/12/2004There is none so glum in the run-up to Christmas than the enterprise software marketing manager. Nobody -- but nobody -- is thinking in terms of strategic investments in scaleable data management solutions: not the CIO, who is contemplating a round of golf on Boxing day, and most certainly not journalists, who are contractually obliged to churn out iPod stories at this time of year.
