Oh great:

RIAA says DRM is back — in the future, you won’t own music (from Arstechnica)

This is the latest in a series of moves and pronouncements by their almighty highnesses, the Recording Industry Association of America. Although DRM (Digital Rights Management) has been dropped from the pay-per-track model of unit shifting, it will be very much alive in the “music rental” era which is to come.

Time to start stockpiling CDs, everyone…
