Week in review: Blame that tune
CNET analyses the uneasiness in the music industry and reports the latest efforts regarding DRM:
However, Microsoft and Apple were both noticeably absent from a consortium of technology companies hoping to create a common antipiracy language, ending the Babel of copy-proofing technologies that has rendered much digital content and hardware incompatible. The Coral Consortium will initially draw on support from giants such as Hewlett-Packard, Matsushita Electric Industrial, Philips Electronics, Samsung Electronics, Sony and Twentieth Century Fox, along with DRM company InterTrust Technologies.
A consortium making DRM! Now I feel uneasy.
The problem the group is tackling is one that's familiar to anyone who owns an iPod and has been unable to play music purchased from an online music store operated by Napster, Microsoft or another Apple rival. DRM software that protects content such as music, movies and video games is proprietary, and many different companies now produce incompatible varieties.
