Jason Reindorp of Microsoft and His Shitty Response to Steve Jobs Thoughts on DRM

with one comment

So Jason Reindorp of Microsoft decided to say something dumb today:

Jason Reindorp, marketing director for Zune at Microsoft, said Mr. Jobs’s call for unrestricted music sales was “irresponsible, or at the very least naïve,” adding, “It’s like he’s on top of the mountain making pronouncements, while we’re here on the ground working with the industry to make it happen.”

“He’s certainly a master of the obvious,” Mr. Reindorp said, adding that “the stars were already aligning” to loosen the restrictions.

So just tell us: What in fuck’s sake are you doing about it? In fact, it seems that at every turn, the Zune has given in to copy protection. The music labels want a piece of the hardware action? Well, let’s give ’em a chunk’a change for every Zune sold. The music labels want to restrict the wifi sharing so that they can ‘protect’ their digital content? Well, hey, let’s make it so that you can only have the song for up to 3 days or can only play it up to 3 times. Oh, and us ML boys want to stop some of those artists that are being sold from your pesky Zune store to NOT be sharable. Guess what Microsoft said to that one? Did they say implementing it would be anti-consumerist? No, of course not, because they’re all “here on the ground working with the industry to make it happen”.

Yeah, and shit can turn into gold if you look at it hard enough.
