I mean why on earth would you buy something with so much locks in it?
You can't copy, erase, share, broadcast or even listen without logging into some service.
You are just permitted to listen to your music, alone, in the dark, with nobody watching or listening.
You end up buying a .mp3 with some horrible quality, up to the neck on locks, expensive (99 cents for song?!) that you can barely listen.

These people think you're a criminal!

buy DRM-Free only people, DRM just sucks.

On top of it, you put it in you shared music folder for all the world to copy and someone ends up with a bad track, no good karma for you either.

@wwbd,
Agree that DRM is silly for many reasons. One correction there is no way to add DRM to a mp3 files unlike other music format it does not support it.

One of the reason it is silly is that DRM can be broken without a geat deal of effort and therfore only interfere with the use of the music by the people willing to buy it. Hell if all else fail there is alway the analog hole.

What the music people should do is price the music so cheaply that it in no one interest to get it for free ninety-nine cent a song is way overprice considing the cost to allow people to download it.

That is the direction that the record companies are moving in now that they had found that suing thier customers does not work.
