iTunes DRM Cracked Again

Well, it didn't take DVD Jon long to work around the update that iTunes released for there software on Monday. Within 24 hours he had update his software to work around the Apple fix. The interesting thing is that he is only releasing a version for Linux. He has been fighting all along that the only reason he is using PyMusique is to give the ability to play iTunes purchased songs on a Linux machine. According to his webblog he is only releasing the update for linux machines.

I thought the most interesting thing was that he has said that he is doing nothing illegal. That this is no illegal in his country. This will be very interesting to see if Apple try's to sue him like the Recording Insdustry did many years ago.

Stay tuned I think the battle has just begum.
