Rage Against My DRM Resolution

leave a comment »

I have always sworn that I would never buy any DRM music.  It’s a fundamentally flawed and immoral idea that if I pay for music I shouldn’t have the right to play it where, when and on what I want.  It’s an idea that is doomed to failure.  Even Steve Jobs, the gamekeeper turned poacher turned lord of the manor turned poacher has recognised that it has exactly the opposite effect to that intended and alienates customers too.

So what has caused me to break my resolution?  The X Factor.  It has to be bad that every Christmas the charts are hijacked by manufactured pop.  I don’t count “Rage Against The Machine” as my favourite band but I spent 67p at Tesco’s online music store and got my DRM track.

You should join in too!  See the Facebook campaign page and rage against The X Factor!
