Doctorow Counters Jobs

Cory Doctorow gathered “some valid counterpoints”: to Jobs’ open letter. It’ll be interesting to see whether Apple will allow indie labels to disable DRM on iTunes, even if the majors stick to it – my gut feeling is that Apple will drop DRM (on music) entirely or not at all. That would be in line with the idea that every song should be $1. (If you want to convince people to buy music online, you better make sure that everything is as transparent as possible.)
