iTunes Plus has been incredibly popular with our customers and now we’re making it available at an even more affordable price,We’re adding over two million tracks from key independent labels in addition to EMI’s digital catalog and look forward to even more labels and artists making their music available on iTunes Plus.

誰會想到當初建立付費購買 MP3的完整版權管理機制的 Apple會推出不加上任何限制的數位音樂?

仔細看看自身四周,有多少人的 MP3 player裡存放的音樂是付費購買,大多數還是由暗黑管道得來的「免費MP3」吧!不購買的原因有很多,沒有想購買的音樂、沒有輕鬆的付費方式,沒有簡單的授權取消,尤其是限制在多少台電腦複製以及綁在 iPod上,諸多限制實在惱人。

防君子不防小人,沒加上煩人的 DRM說不定銷量還可以上昇呢。
