Submission + - RIAA: Don't Expect DRMed Music To Work Forever (arstechnica.com)

Oracle Goddess writes: "Buying DRMed content, then having that content stop working later is fair writes Steven Metalitz, the lawyer who represents the MPAA, RIAA in a letter to the top legal advisor at the Copyright Office. "We reject the view that copyright owners and their licensees are required to provide consumers with perpetual access to creative works." In other words, if it stops working, too bad. Not surprisingly, Metalitz also strongly opposes any exemption that would allow users to legally strip DRM from content if a store goes dark and takes down its authentication servers."
