In such a world, any player can play music purchased from any store, and any store can sell music which is playable on all players. This is clearly the best alternative for consumers, and Apple would embrace it in a heartbeat."

From the article:

And since 97% of the music on the average iPod was not purchased from the iTunes store, iPod users are clearly not locked into the iTunes store to acquire their music.

I think Jobs are forgetting that the music is probably not purchased from a DRM-free online store, but probably downloaded from the net or a CD-rip.

This case is about legally purchased music, and not what you can do with your iPod.
