Ok we knew it was just a matter of time! At the Reg, they spotted a BBC report that details the fact that Redmond has spotted FairUse4WM on the radar and they are going to bring it down.
Here is the snippage from the report:
Microsoft licences its DRM technology to online stores, such as Napster, who use it as a means to restrict the use of music purchased online so as to ensure copyright is not infringed. Marcus Matthias, senior product manager, Windows Client Division, told the BBC: “Microsoft is aware that a tool recently surfaced that circumvents Windows Media Digital Rights Management technology. Fortunately, the Windows Media DRM system has built-in renewability, we have an update to address the circumvention, and are working with our partners to deploy this solution,” he added.
Well, I’m no Hax0R, but it seems to me it is going to be tough to stop this program from stripping the DRM out of these lossy files! What do you all think? Can Microsoft plug this hole?
