France to crack iTunes' DRM

Interesting news from the French contingent of Assistant. Anne-So passes on information that reveals that:

"The French Parliament is on its way to passing a law that would force Apple's iTunes to open its online music store and enable consumers to download songs onto devices other than the iPod: like mobile phones, for example. The draft law makes it legal to crack digital rights management (DRM) security software and encourages consumers to use software that converts digital content into any format. The French government said the law aims to fight piracy and encourage the development of the online digital music market in France."

Good work!

Course, you could just use bleep!
