LXer: DRM on audio CD's abolished

Published at LXer:

EMI has stopped publishing audio CD's with DRM. It is the last publisher to do so. This means no DRM audio CD's will be released anymore. [Not FLOSS or Linux related, but definately good news. DRM hits us all, even in FLOSS-land -- Sander]

Yay no more viruses/rootkits for the few people who actually pay money to buy CDs.

Thats great news hopefully it stays this way. I especially thought this bit was good.

>>"Honest people will always be honest people and DRM doesn't stop people who have ill intentions anyway".
Why should many people be restricted up because of the few who do steal.
