Default Ditching DRM could reduce piracy, prices, inconvenience

This may run counter to what your common sense tells you but, a new paper out of Duke and Rice University says that ditching DRM could actually reduce piracy.

Could reduce piracy? I'm pretty sure it would. Who ever wrote that paper is about 5 years behind me.

I thought that ditching DRM already happened. AmazonMP3 and iTunes store are DRM-free now (of course, AmazonMP3 was always DRM-free).
