Great move today by Apple and EMI. EMI will be offering DRM free songs for higher price. I believe this is a great move, as they will increase monetization of people who are willing to pay (with a higher quality) and let the others who are illegally downloading anyway.
"We are going to give iTunes customers a choice -- the current versions of our songs for the same 99 cent price, or new DRM-free versions of the same songs with even higher audio quality and the security of interoperability for just 30 cents more," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We think our customers are going to love this"
In my company (Boonty), we still use DRM to protect some games. We would like to test DRM free games but content owner are still reluctant to do so. The problem with DRM is that it is very often punishing honest people in hope of catching the thieves. Solving the DRM dilemma has always been very tricky and non one has come up with the right solution so far.
By the way we only protect single player games, as multiplayer games available on cafe.com do not require DRM by nature since you have to open an account that is verified each time you login. Maybe piracy can be solved with communities ?
