About giving the customers what they want
Published: Friday 2008-10-03.
I have earlier, on multiple occasions, written about the music and movie mafia and their methods for stopping customers from doing anything useful with lawfully purchased music, or, for that matter, to even be able to lawfully buy music if you happen to be living in the “wrong” place. I am not the only one to be annoyed, Pål Joakim Olsen writes in a comment on DinSide.no on how difficult it is to abide by the law (Norwegian; auto-translate) and still be able to buy what you want to buy. I mean, if you have to cheat with the Itunes log-in to be able to reach the content you want to buy (Norwegian; auto-translate), who will then care about doing it, instead of going to The Pirate Bay? I have not bought a single DRM “protected” mp3 file since AllOfMp3 was closed, and I will not do so, because with DRM you never know for how long the mafia will let you listen to your purchased music.
