DRM arguments

Murky has written about DRM, and the fact that owners of MP3 players don’t buy many digital downloads, but are very likely to buy more CDs than somebody who doesn’t own an MP3 player. Superficially, this “blows the pro-DRM arguments for music out of the water.” But it isn’t even as simple as this. Perhaps the reason why portable music player owners buy more CDs is because they like music better anyway? NB: I hate DRM.
