Steve Jobs has just posted what's being called a manifesto speaking out against music companies and their forced inclusion of DRM. The manifesto could be subtitled as Die DRM Die. Not in German. Jobs talks frankly about the role of DRM and how the entire concept is born out of irrational fear from the big 4 music companies. He openly embraces a DRM-less world and says that it'll be better for everybody in the near and long run. he calls upon people not to lobby against technology companies, but instead direct their efforts towards the music publishers.
