Gizmodo did an interview with Bill Gates. One of the topics was DRM. Gates makes a good comment on why we have DRM in the first place. Whether we, as users, like it or not.
"Gates: Yes. There are artists who want the software to remind people of rights boundaries. Are those authors wrong or right? That's up to them. We don't take a position on that. What we want is to have as much content as possible available. And available in the most convenient, easy-to-use form."
Let's just hope artists and record companies will soon realize there are different ways to make money with the art they create.
