Digital World Norway Outlaws iTunes

Interesting…I’m not a big fan of governments legislating services — particular a service like this in part because there are available options to work around Apple’s Fairplay DRM and allow play of downloaded items on other players.  So I’m not sure what to think about this.  On the one hand — it would be great if the whole DRM concept could be scrapped — or at least — unified to a single open format.  On the other, I find this kind of meddling to be very disturbing on a number of levels, so I guess we’ll see where it goes from here.  Link below.
