Microsoft's DRM technology has been hacked, rendering all existing digital music subscription services effectively shut down until a fix is made available.
With the tool mentioned in the article above, one is able to convert their subscription music files to a DRM free WMA file that can be copied, transferred to music players, converted to MP3s, and/or burned to CDs without any restrictions.
I wonder how long it will be until Yahoo, Napster, and others have to shut down their subscription services in response to the DRM hack. I haven't seen any announcements yet, but I bet one will be forthcoming.
More importantly, I wonder how quickly Microsoft will be able to respond to this latest hack.
