  2. Apple’s CFO said:

    “We believe that consumers would be best served in a marketplace where any player can play music purchased from any store, and any store could sell music that would be playable on any player. We think this is the best result for consumers and Apple would embrace it wholeheartedly. In terms of the financial impact, that remains to be seen. We’ve sold over 2 billion songs, 50 million TV shows, 1.3 million movies. We’ve provided a great experience to customers, and we think we have the best solution out there. We’re going to continue to invest in the iPod and in iTunes, and we stand ready to compete.”

    Exactly right. Well said. Bravo!

    Music wants to be DRM-free.
