#546: Music DRM

Music DRM

[[Interior, a man sits at his computer typing, woman enters]]

Man [typing]: …and that’s why music DRM is bad for listeners and artists!

Woman[off-panel]: What are you doing?

Woman: In case you didn’t notice, we won the music DRM war. The big stores are DRM free.

Woman: So close the comment thread, get out the debit card, buy us some music, and let’s rock the fuck out.

Man: But I don’t actually like music, I just like being self-righteous on the web.

Woman: Lucky for you, that will always be free.

{{title text: Just yesterday I bought my first non-DRM’ed songs (The Last Vegas, in keeping with my ‘I only listen to things from Guitar Hero’ theme).
