Commentary by Stephen Downes

There ought to be some lessons learned from the chorus of complaints being raised by Britons being subjected to DRM problems in their downloaded music. This complaint is typical: "One confused reader said he had spent £40 in an online store. Although his MP3 player played Windows Media Audio (WMA) files that he created, it would not play the copyright-protected WMA files he had purchased." Writers have also noted that music publishers are raising prices for demonstrably inferior products. The backlash could be significant.
