The problem with these ridiculous lawsuits is they do not originate with actual customers, but originate with bottom feeding attorneys who go looking for plaintiffs so that they can line their own pockets with 10's of millions, and sometimes hundreds of millions, of dollars. Meanwhile, the actual customers end up with just a few bucks in their pockets. It's nothing more than legalized extortion.
These scumbag attorneys are pariah. They will be the only ones to make any real compensation if they win this case - lining their pockets with 10o's of millions. The insanity needs to be stopped in our legal system - it is horribly broken.
Actually it's not your music, or Apple's. It belongs to the music companies, song writers and musicians. You are only granted a license to use it. Period. It was in fact the music companies that required the DRM, and there is absolutely no reason why Apple should have had to "share" their technology or innovations with anyone else.
For those calling people ignorant that purchase these cheap products, they are wrong. These consumers are just misinformed or unaware. The truly ignorant are Android users beating the drum that Android is safe, and open is better.
