So last night, Steve Jobs posted his simple and brilliant manifesto Thoughts on Music on Apple's website. Essentially, he argues that DRM doesn't work for consumers, music companies or device makers. He argues for an open solution that allows true interoperability between players and music for the benefit of consumers. This, he believes, is good for the industry. Couldn't agree more.
So, at Media Summit, a moderator asks questions of a panel. Jason Hirschhorn to his credit admits to not having read it. Another unnamed big media senior exec on the panel attempted to take on Jobs, but got his simple argument wrong, demonstrating that he was faking it (didn't actually read it). Oy.
