(idolator.com) Steve Jobs posted an essay, innocuously titled "Thoughts On Music," on apple.com today; instead of being filled with reflections on what his iPod's been bumping lately, though, he talks about digital-rights management and its future. He closes with a challenge to record labels:

[this is just a small part, see the full for it all] So if the music companies are selling over 90 percent of their music DRM-free, what benefits do they get from selling the remaining small percentage of their music encumbered with a DRM system? There appear to be none. If anything, the technical expertise and overhead required to create, operate and update a DRM system has limited the number of participants selling DRM protected music.

This can only be seen as a positive by the music companies. - Click here for the Full Story
