Bill Gates admits DRM is bad for users

Recently, Bill Gates was interviewed by a group of high profile bloggers. He apparently stated that we need to be able to do things like “buy an artist out for life”. I wonder how much that would cost?

But the key point is that he recognises that DRM is bad for users, and that this problem is not going away.

Find a business model that allows people to download tunes for free, and still justly reaward the artists… its the only way. Instead of ‘helping’ people have access to music, these DRM dinosaurs are trying to ‘stop’ people having access to music. It wont work! Find an other business model!
