The Big Picture: DRM Crippled CD: A bizarre tale in 4 parts : Variety writes that "the new copy protection scheme which makes it difficult to rip CDs and listen to them with an iPod is designed to put pressure on Apple to open the iPod to other music services, rather than making it dependent on the iTunes Music Store for downloads."

It's DRM day today. Ludicrous as this entire story is, let's not forget that Apple is also guilty here for whatever reasons; by using DRM to manipulate the market and protect their position as an exclusive distributor of music to iPod owners.
