According to this article, Real Networks CEO Bob Gleiser said that iPod users steal music. What comment I have for him is DUH! The whole idea behind buying any mp3 player not just iPods alone is so that you can copy music you get illegally into small, compact players. Previously, before iPod became a phenomenon, music was still stolen and then converted into .wav format to burn to CDs. Now, we just skip the converting and burning parts.
And after forking out enough money to buy half a computer or about 20 music CDs, I don’t suppose iPod users would want to fork out more money on the music which they can get for free. By the way, music you rip from your friends’ CDs is also considered to be illegally obtained. Not that you can rip it easily with all the protection they put in these days.
