The death of DRM

Further to my post on Music IR, it appears that DRM is not likely to be around for very much longer. Some evidence:

  • DRM free music sales outnumber DRM sales by 4:1.

  • DRM free music sales shifts albums - 70% MP3 sales being full albums.

  • Shift from unbundling albums to single sales caused revenue decline

I will not be mourning the death of a pointless and self defeating technology.
