OMG - Hell must be a bit colder today - France and I agree on something.
This stems from years ago and in Paris - way before Iraq Part I and II. Parisians and I don't get along. We just don't. The city is beautiful, the art magnificient, the food and wine, amazing, but the city residents and I cannnot get along. Outside of Paris - no problem. That is for another discussion sometime.
However, and this issue could be argued many ways, I am actually in partial agreement with France's government on this:
Again, Free Market and Enterprise could be argued against the economic reprucussions of doing something like this, I just want my music to be transparent to the media I decide to employ my music upon... without jumping through hoops in order to get it to work. Right or wrong - it's just want I want, you know, the customer.
However, I'm sure I am missing something, but it's Friday and Chipotle is calling me.

That's an interesting read, although I'm not sure how I feel about it. I like the idea of not having to work around their protected formatt (not that it is difficult at all), but I'm not sure if I agree with forcing Apple to change. I'd have to read up on Anti-Trust laws before I take a strong opinion. Otherwise, it won't effect me much, I don't own an Ipod or use ITunes anyway.
