On Thoughts on Music

This is my brief response to Steve Jobs' (of Apple) Thoughts on Music.

Dear Steve,

You say that the “big four” music companies control the distribution of over 70% of the world’s music, and that the reason iTunes uses DRM is because they force you too.

If you really do support the sale of DRM-free music, please support it in deed as well as in word. There is the remaining 30% of the world's music that could potentially be sold DRM-free - emusic.com manages to find plenty.

Please start selling some music DRM-free.

In the mean time, I will continue to show my support by only purchasing DRM-free music (yes, I have an iPod, and NO iTunes music).

Thanks,
Ross
