Apple vs. France

So far Apple have been able to present themselves as the good guys in the music download imbroglio. iTunes, their proprietry music (and now video) download service broke the logjam around legal vs illegal downloads and has gone on to sell millions of tracks. But there was a catch. iTunes can only be played on Apple’s own device, the iPod. Now they’ve just been hit by a new law in France that will force them to open up their DRM (digital rights management) and allow iTunes tracks to play on other devices. All hell has broken loose. Apple could withdraw their service from France, or take the matter to the EU. But this could have broader ramifications for the use of digital music tracks. Viva la music!
