Just a quickie.
Check this article published today on the The Age website:
I’ve posted before about the new copyright/piracy debate sparked by the recent releases of several cloud music services.
Time for an update.
But here’s the kicker: if iTunes sells any of those songs that you didn’t buy (read: stole), then “all the music iTunes matches plays back at 256-Kbps iTunes Plus quality — even if your original copy was of lower quality”. (Source: iTunes website)
Great for pirates (if you’ve got $25 to spare). Not so great for copyright.
What do you think, is Apple legitimizing piracy? Or simply giving the people what they want?
In any case, it seems if you can’t beat them…
