Will People Really Boycott Apple Over DRM?

Ian Lamont writes “DefectiveByDesign.org is waging a battle against DRM with a 35-day campaign targeting various hardware and software products from Microsoft, Nintendo, and others. On day 11 it blasted iTunes for continuing to use DRM-encumbered music, games, TV shows, movies, audiobooks, and apps with DRM, while competitors are selling music without restrictions. DefectiveByDesign calls on readers to include ‘iTunes gift cards and purchases in your boycott of all Apple products’ to ‘help drive change.’ However, there’s a big problem with this call to arms: most people simply don’t care about iTunes DRM. Quoting: ‘The average user is more than willing to pay more money for hobbled music because of user interface, ease of use, and marketing. … Apple regularly features exclusive live sets from popular artists, while Amazon treats its digital media sales as one more commodity being sold.’ What’s your take on the DRM schemes used by Apple and other companies? Is a boycott called for, and can it be effective?”

Don’t know about most folks but I quit buying any of their products when they first started using DRM. Still got the two old iBooks running OSX10.3.9 and have no plans to upgrade other than to switch them over to Linux. I’ve got Skype running on my desktop and am not tied to the laptop for that anymore, so as soon as I have the time and energy to go through all the stuff on the laptop harddrive the apple OS is history.
