CDM on Portable Players and DRM

A really excellent post from Peter at Create Digital Music, detailing the methods for accessing the music on your portable player, and how the methods used to support DRM can make your life more difficult. I do agree with him on most points here – the use of DRM systems very rarely (never?) benefits users, and can cause some real problems.

See the follow-up linked at the bottom of the post – Peter gets into some discussion on this with Cory Doctorow.
