My parents got Alvin & the Chipmunks II on DVD for my 7year old daughter for christmas. Yes, I know. Probably not the best choice of all. But keep in mind that my 7year old is smart as hell, so a little grounding may actually help. But that’s not the point of my rant.
Flipping through the DVD jewel case I found an “iTunes Digital Copy” leaflet with an activation code, allowing me to import the DVD into iTunes without the need to circumvent DRM.
Yup, the DRM is still there, it’s still a royal pain in the … and it’s still bad for everyone involved – but at least the Fox / iTunes guys came up with a solution which made our 7+ hours car trip to La Plagne last week more enjoyable for everyone.
