Canadian music industry: forget the levies, bring on DRM heaven

Slashdot | Dealing with Digital Music and Vendor Lock-In?

Buying and using digital music is a far from easy decision today - there are various competing and incompatible formats, stores and players out there in the market, primarily Apple (AAC + iTunes + iPod), Windows (WMA + various stores + WMA-compatible players), and Sony (Atrac3 + + Walkman).

"We have lobbied for years . . . to get those laws up to date so we're in line with everyone in the world - and I mean everyone else."

Globetechnology: Appeals court opens door to music download suits

Canadians who share music files on the Internet can now be sued by the record industry, but it will not be an easy process, according to legal experts.

But the appeals decision is being interpreted as a win by both sides in the music download debate, since it left the door open to future suits when the judge indicated copyright law must still be respected.
