[maemo-users] [maemo-users] Opensource software for Itunes

pursuant to earlier posts on this subject of Apple itunes software on 
the N770,  here is an article on an opensource project/product that 
supports playback of itunes on non-itunes compatible mp3 players while 
at the same time pouring cold water on the notion that Apple would open 
up itunes to the Linux community in general or Nokia specifically.

. In effect what the product developers must be doing is breaking the 
Apple DRM protection, which may get the producers of this software in 
trouble with respect to US Law, that is, the Digital Millennium 
Copyright Act (DMCA). On the other hand, since the leader of this 
effort, Michael Robertson has been down this "road" (that is, going 
against the music copyright owners interests) before, with another  
company he established, mp3.com, he most assuredly has his eyes open and 
his legal team ready.



Best Regards,
