Almost nobody likes the DRM system

    Music industry leaders agree with Apple CEO Steve Jobs saying DRM should be buried. According to Jupiter Research, most record labels consider DRM “unsuitable for achieving goals,” writes MacWorld .

    Even before Jobs spoke out against DRM, Jupiter Research conducted a survey among executives in record companies, in which 54% of respondents were sure that the system imposed too many restrictions, and 62% admitted that abandoning DRM would increase the level of music sales .

    No less indicative are the results of Q Research: 85% of young people in the UK aged 11 to 25 have MP3 players, of which 45% do not pay for music at all, about 30% buy music for about $ 10 (5 pounds) per month 3% spend about $ 50 (25 pounds) per month.
