Apple is watching you!

May 31st, 2007

Don't think that Apple's new DRM-free iTunes Plus is an opportunity to file share with your friends - Apple is watching!

With great power comes great responsibility, and apparently with DRM-free music comes files embedded with identifying information. Such is the situation with Apple's new DRM-free music: songs sold without DRM still have a user's full name and account e-mail embedded in them, which means that dropping that new DRM-free song on your favorite P2P network could come back to bite you.

What worries me about this is not that people who file share could have some explaining to do (if you share copyrighted content and get caught, you deserve what's coming) but it's that this info could be changed or spoofed and innocent people put in the frame.
