you have to consider though that this speech was made after almost all of the troubles with The Beatles has passed...granted, it's not totally over yet....but I think that in light of what iTunes has accomplished and the continued lack of a viable competitor, that this is a somewhat bold move on Jobs' behalf.  That said, it is very convenient for the iTunes suit going on in Europe...but it's a double edged sword....Apple Inc gets sued in Europe for tying, but without some similar technology the ability to freely copy the files could result in liability here...it's tough position to be in.
