I'm sure there are other people who've said that DRM is pointless, but I really like the way this article puts it, particularly this phrase/link: "DRM only punishes honest consumers." I've spent a fair amount of money buying music from iTunes, despite having (and wanting) no iPod, which was probably pretty foolish. Given a way to buy music legally that I can use in a flexible way (like, say, unencrypted mp3's), I'd feel much more confident doing that, and would probably buy more music through it. Sure, there would be a bit of 'leak' from people transferring files they hadn't paid for, but I think the decreased resentment is worth more than they give it credit for.
