I linkblogged the Wired article that purports that the majors are going to consider selling unprotected MP3s with watermarking technology.  I support this.  I’ve long felt that users should be trusted with unencumbered content.  This move would go a ways towards making mainstream music consumption friendlier, but there are still the Catch-22’s of the cases of broken media (did I buy that plastic disc, or did I buy the right to listen to that content?) and copy-protected CDs versus music CD-R/Minidisc tax (I paid your stinking tax, now why can’t I legally transfer the music to taxed media?).
