Sony's DRM fiasco is NOT comparable
Authored by: shavenyak on Jan 11, '06 11:27:07AM

Sony's CDs weren't free, and they affected the entire computer. iTunes is free, and the ministore, which can be easily turned off, only affects iTunes itself and reports only on activities occuring within iTunes.

If Sony gave their CDs away free, and their software only told Sony when the CD itself was being played, and there was an easy way to turn off the communication, that comparison might be valid. Even then, the Sony CDs didn't have the (arguable) value of providing useful recommendations to the listener like iTunes.
