Legal Well, this was as inevitable as the tides rolling in. The New York Times is reporting that the US Department of Justice is investigating Apple's tactics in the digital music market. The antitrust probe is still in an early phase, and is said to focus on "the dynamics of selling music online".

Apple hasn't sold music with DRM for some time now.


Apple is still selling DRMed music, it's simply watermarked DRM (your name etc. attached to every song you buy)!!!

So what about your rights of second-hand selling your iTunes song or passing on your collection to someone else (e.g. heritage)...? iTunes = still DRM but hidden!
