iTunes DRM cracked

Oops, he did it again. DVD-Jon cracked iTunes DRM:

Norwegian programmer Jon Lech Johansen, who broke the DVD encryption scheme, has opened iTunes locked music a tad further, by allowing people to play songs they've purchased on iTunes Music Store on their GNU/Linux computers.

The reasoning that DRM is just an annoyance for honnest consumers and do nothing to prevent theft does sound quite right, and I guess that hackers will do whatever they can to prove it. Anyway, yet another interesting legal case to watch soon.
