This individual tried to do the right thing for the love of music.  It appears that the music industry let him down.   It seems to me that at some point we could come to a technolgy solution that would help everyone.

 You have hardware providers (apple, microsoft -zune, creative, sony, etc…) making devices.  you then have software to run on those devices that can or cannot use DRM.  You then add the mix of what type of drm and who can play in what device. 

Ah, the good old days of mixed tapes.  We may have been breaking the law back then, but it sure was fun.
