Apple Just when you thought that DRM was on its way out, with various music stores abolishing the practice, some company will implement DRM in yet another way that will affect lots of customers in a very negative way. The most recent case of idiotic DRM comes courtesy of a gadget maker from Cupertino. Update: MacWorld provides nuance to the story, with comments from Apple and third-party manufacturers.

It is not a nearly vendor lock in of any kind. It is basically saying we have certain certifications for our product i.e "Made for iPod" If you want to use the made for ipod brnad then you license it.

You can implement it without using the made for ipod brand. This is no different from any other vendor certifying products. Also Thom a little retraction would be nice.

It would be nice for a little clarification on the issue.
