More iPod & DRM (via Michael Casey)

Michael Casey, who has the coolest programs at his library for young people, comments here at TTW:

This quote is from the Accessibility Trial of the Downloadable Digital Audio Book Service from netLibrary and Recorded Books. (I tried to enter a link but it was refused when I tried posting)

“The fact that netLibrary’s digital audio books are in the protected WMA file format, coupled with the fact that Apple iPods and most accessible devices (for example, the Book Port and the Book Courier) will not play the WMA file format, is unfortunate. One can only hope that soon both Apple and the manufacturers of accessible playback devices realize that supporting the playback of WMA content is in everyone’s best interest.”
