One of my favourite mac heads (damned hippies) objects to me insinuating the iTunes format as
Apple unique. I did state
that the iTunes format is AAC
which is the mpeg4 audio format.
MPEG4 does provide a standardised interface for DRM
but you will note that the specification states
"With this interface, proprietary control systems can be easily amalgamated with the standardized
part of the decoder".
Introducing me and MP3
For the last 3 years I've been working with digital media, from streaming PopIdol highlights to
showing Kylie's music and
underwear, dealing with the labels,
the technology companies and the users.
The music industry slowly seems to be accepting digital music, with the legitimisation of Napster,
iTunes, BuyMusic and the
European MSN MusicStore.
