Interesting observation that Apple are effectively a monopoly (or in Arrington’s word, a monopsony) mitigating against any successful competition getting off the ground. Apple the Microsoft of downloadable music – in a parallel universe where the record companies didn’t insist on DRM when the iTMS was being shopped around and set up, I wonder whether Apple would have been happy to go with a DRM-free solution, despite the potential impact of piracy upon music sold through their store.
