Not that I’m a big buyer of music, it does force a bit of competition into the market. I’d still question the value of 99c per song, but I guess it’s not grey-market goods like CD Wow or AllOfMP3. While I dislike DRM of any form, I think it’s inevitable, and we can’t live in a world of freely copy-able music. iTunes seems to go some of the way to make DRM less of a pain for ordinary users, and, let’s face it, is the easiest downloadable music shopping experience for the vast majority of users. Here’s to many more improvements.
Now, off to change my country back to Irealnd in my Apple profile. They’ve even made that easy to do.
