EFF: DRM-free iTunes is good, but DRM from Apple ain't dead

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has taken the opportunity to both applaud and slam Apple on the digital rights management (DRM) front just one day after the company announced that some 10 million iTunes Store tracks would be DRM-free by the end of April. In a blog post on the EFF's website, EFF Activist Richard Esguerra points out that the deal between Apple and the record companies shows "DRM's true colors"—that is, that it's designed to act as a form of control rather than to fight piracy.
