Not Good: Jobs Changes The iTunes Rules
I don't know about you but when I invest in a certain type of media I don't expect the rules to be randomly changed on me. While Apple's recent change to the Digital Rights Management (DRM) agreement may seem benign the changes, by their very existence, are a dangerous precedent.
Imagine, after building up a 100 odd CD collection being told that, from now on, the CD's that you buy now cannot be played in your car? Absurd? By treating iTunes songs as software Apple has reminded all of us that the rules can, and will change. While changing the rules from 10 burns to 7 burns isn't a big deal this isn't the point. The point is that as consumers we cannot rely on the iTunes music store being a stable entity. What if the record labels start to get, as they are prone to, even more irrationally paranoid and decide that we can only use our songs on one machine, burn them once, and listen to them on an iPod? Irrational? Yes. Improbable? Perhaps. But entirely plausible.
