This is from the ale ( ) list...
DRM is a funny thing. I emailed Napster after seeing the Super Bowl
commercial. The question was how to use their service with a generic
memory stick player and Linux. I get an email explaining how the files
I download from them are in WMA format with Windows DRM. Then they go
on explaining how I can circumvent that protection by burning and audio
CD and ripping then converting back to MP3. A PITA to do. At the end
of the email they even suggest using a CD-RW in case I plan on doing
this a lot and their software can erase the CD-RW before buring. I bet
iTunes would have never told me these things. I already knew this
process but I just thought it funny they would tell me about it.
Way to go Napster!!
