The NY Times on Universal v. Apple

by Josh Kimball

Fine overview, amusingly restrained tenor. Funny to see this take on DRM, commenting on Jobs’ “open letter” dissing digital rights management from a while ago: “There is anecdotal evidence to suggest that Mr. Jobs may be on to something.” Ahem; yes.

The piece also brings up Amazon’s wading into the digital music fray, and potential cross-sells: Free music tracks with the purchase of an mp3 player, etc. – as well as Apple’s high margins on devices.
