Apple locks out application developers they don’t like
I’ve babbled about how DRM is bad for consumers and bad for the world before. I think it’s important to keep in mind that when one person/business/entity holds all the keys to entry, it stifles innovation. Apple has built themselves a tidy little walled-garden and if they’re not careful with how they tend it, they’re going to find a lot of unhappy … garden gnomes.
On a related topic, I listened to a great podcast about copyright this week when I saw it mentioned on Michael Geist’s blog. Well-worth listening to.
