Apple vs. France

This is old news, but I'd been saving the page and never posted anything about it. Did anyone notice that there's a major copyright law fight going on between Apple (and consequently the US) and France? France basically wants Apple to unlock the DRM that keeps songs bought on iTunes from being played on non-iPod mp3 players. Currently, you have to buy songs, burn them, and rip them again to use them as unrestricted mp3's. Apple wants full inter-operability for music purchased via any store for any mp3 player. The US has declared their support for Apple, and the battle begins.
