Jobs on DRM

You go Steve! I just posted about DRM yesterday, and coincidentally Steve jobs today called on the major record labels to start selling music online (Yahoo story). His argument, which actually seems quite reasonable, is that if the record labels are content to sell 90% of their full-quality music on CD-ROM without any DRM, why won't they sell their reduced quality MP3 audio online (10% of sales) without DRM as well? Seems like a perfectly reasonable question. (Note: Jobs also posted his thoughts on Apple.com)
