I think the DRM issues won't be that big *for me*, as I burn my own music 
from real CDs. That may change, bit for now, I don't pay to download my 
music. As long as I can burn "clean" MP3s I'm good for now, and since the 
software to do so already exists, I'd find it hard to believe that 
capability will be going away anytime soon...

As a concept, I hate CPU-bound DRM, but as a software professional, I have 
to admit it has it's place. It is the use of it that can cause concern...
