  • Maybe he does have a point that some music on people's iPods has been downloaded on the internet. But I'd like to point out that a) it is not (yet) illegal to do so in my country, Germany (only uploading is), that b) it was the iPod that got me interested in listening to music again after years of not caring about it anymore and as a result buying music on iTunes and CDs and c) that I've stopped buying CDs again a year ago when the DRM on the CDs prohibited me from making a simple copy to listen to in the car. Steve Jobs is right - a fair price is essential for people to get out of the habit of downloading and start buying music instead. The prices for new CDs is actually quite reasonable in large outlets. But if the product does not let me handle it like I used to do for 20 years I refuse to pay for it. It's a ridiculous philosophy by the record companies since I get the songs on the Internet anyway.
