and is one of those rare situations where the bulk of the consumers
AND the producers agree!"

...or not!
(Sorry, pet peeve topic)

I do think that we can all agree that the convenience of using digital
media (all forms) is an awesome thing.

However, as Kay pointed out, the question of ownership and/or the
ability to fully transfer our licensed digital material -> somehow<-
needs to be addressed in a manner that is fair to the person whom has
paid the fees.

I have a very tiny media collection primarily because of those very
kinds of issues and have no desire or intent to add much more than
what I have now. It was my thoughts way prior to his death that Mr.
Jobs and Apple could all kiss my backside for thinking they could
"rent" rather than sell me media without some form of rights as a
legitimate customer.... they that are left running the show still can.

< whew, I somehow feel a little better now >

Best regards,
David C.
