A DRM perfect world

I’ve been writing about the French and their approach about DRM. They are introducing regulation which will open up the issue around Digital Right Management used by different suppliers.

I have nothing against the French, I have nothing against DRM and I have nothing against Apple. But what I don’t like is being locked in by one supplier.
Apple has the market on online music sales with their iTunes and is expanding it into the video market as well. I don’t own Apple equipment and I am not going to buy it just because it enables me to buy from their website.

I want an open DRM model which enables me to play my music and video on any device from any brand I happen to own. Maybe the French initiative will help me.
