More Silliness On Interoperability and DRM
Billboard reports that the music industry is pushing Apple and MS to solve their DRM interop problems, and even suggests that there have been private talks between the relevant parties. The solution: "transcoding" - being able to securely turn a FairPlay-AAC file into a Secure WMA file. So Apple won't sell you an actual WMA file, but it will provide you the means to turn their files into WMA.
