    Jobs on February 6, 2007:

    "Imagine a world where every online store sells DRM-free music encoded in
    open licensable formats. In such a world, any player can play music
    purchased from any store, and any store can sell music which is playable on
    all players."

    Dale, in microsoft.public.windowsmedia.player on February 2, 2007:

    "That is what needs to happen with DRM. There needs to be one standard.
    Any
    licensed media from any authorized source can, within the usage rights
    assigned to that media, be played in any player capable of playing protected
    media. When that happens, I will support DRM for music files."

    Pretty hypocritical statement from someone who makes a lot of money because
    of DRM. I agree 100% with the statement. Too bad he doesn't practice what he
    preaches.

    I'm just hoping to see Apple donate the profits they get from their own
    99 cent site...
