DRM also bores the retailers

Posted 22 November 2007 19:37 CET by geno888

After all, end-consumers are not the only ones bored by DRM. On a news published at Ars Technica, UK retailers are complaining too because "DRM is killing us".

As reported in the article,
Consumers are increasingly dissatisfied with copy protection systems that erode fair use rights and impose limitations on where and how content can be used. To make matters worse, market fragmentation has led to the emergence of incompatible DRM formats which often confuse consumers and leave them wondering whether or not the content they buy will work on all of their electronics devices. That makes file-sharing more attractive for some consumers.

Being P2P the only source of DRM-less music it is rather obvious that people are buying less and less from stores: who would want to purchase three copies of the same song (one for home Hi-Fi, one for car radio and one for the portable player)?

You know if they were to offer a package deal like Napster wanted of 9.99 a month DRM free and unlimited downloads i would be the first to sign up.Im sure they majority of people would be waiting in line to sign up.We all want to see the artist end up with the money and not the greedy RIAA but its not that people are not willing to pay for music its there not going to let somebody screw them like the RIAA.
