It seems like only yesterday that Sony was spending gazillions on a double pronged empire saving exercise. Prong one was shutting down Napster while prong two was fancy schmancy digital rights management to attempt to stop illegal copying of music.

News today that Sony is the last of the big four music companies to drop DRM. The best thing – now we can digitally copy Britney Spears and Celine Deon at will.

Or maybe not? (that is we can, but would we really want to?)
