Apple’s Jobs calls for DRM-free world

In a rare open letter from CEO Steve Jobs on Tuesday, Apple has urged record companies to abandon digital rights management technologies.

The letter, posted on Apple’s Web site and titled “Thoughts on Music,” is a long examination of Apple’s iTunes and what the future may hold for the online distribution of copy-protected music. In the letter, Jobs says Apple was forced to create a DRM system to get the world’s four largest record companies onboard with the iTunes Store.
