It would seem that once again those people that trusted the music industry and bought music protected with DRM are about to be screwed. As covered in this EFF Blog entry, it seems that Yahoo music is now about to shut their DRM servers down thus stranding anyone that bought their DRM’d music. People really need to learn to tell The music industry that DRM is junk and we don’t want it.
It’d be nice to see a class action suit against the folks responsible, but the Music producers would blame Yahoo for shutting down the servers, thus dodging responsibility for the fact that they made Yahoo put the DRM on the files.
