“The Customer is Always Wrong”

The Electronic Frontier Foundation has published a guide that translates various online music stores’ marketing messages into a true picture of the limitations those restrictions impose and how those restrictions differ from your legal rights under current copyright law. They review Apple’s iTunes, RealNetworks, Microsoft’s “Play for Sure“, and Napster 2.0. Before buying crippled music from one of these services, check out EFF’s guide, The Customer is Always Wrong.
