Napster never dies

So Napster are having another crack at it [DRM free Napster]

In a way I feel sorry for the guys behind Napster, they were too early on the scene and don't have the power, like Apple do, to make the industry change.

It brings up some interesting questions - Just what are we trying to achieve with DRM? Given the option, do you release your music with copy protection or without? Does it really matter?

The DRM free tracks on most providers are better quality and the same price, so why would you buy a protected copy. Perhaps at some point you've just gotta trust that what you're selling is good enough for people to buy...
