<nettime> Ecommerce and "DRM" (Apple)

Apple has some "client side DRM" in their iPod supermegamusicstore, that
is neither "DRM" in the sense of WIPO and the DMCA etc, see
http://gurke.bootlab.org/~uzs106/bla/wipodmcaetc.pdf , nor effectiv.
But their strategy is different; they dont care about kids, who might
"crack" their system, they want to make parents pay that their kids stay
"legal", see www.apple.com.
