Despite iTunes and Amazon dropping DRM completely for quite some time, the RIAA has finally gone and admitted that DRM is dead.
Torrent Freak reports Jonathan Lamy, chief spokesperson for the RIAA, made the comment when asked about the RIAA’s view on DRM for an upcoming SCMagazine article. “DRM is dead, isn’t it?” Lamy said, referring to the various online outfits that now offer music without restrictions.
