Napster Boss: life after piracy, iPod, iTunes and Steve Jobs' tricks...

Check this story about P2P download wars and Napster boss on life after piracy and battling the iPod, BBC News website speaks to Brad Duea, president of online music service Napster.

Brad Duea goes on like this:

"Mr Duea says online music sales can transform the whole spectrum of music production and consumption - from artist to music lover.

The most high profile of all the services is probably Apple's iTunes, which has a very different model to Napster's.

There are no subscribers to iTunes, users purchase songs either on a per track basis or in the form of albums.

It has sold more than 500 million songs world-wide, but Mr Duea is critical of the approach Apple has taken.


Most interestingly:

He [Brad Duea] says Apple boss Steve Jobs has "tricked people into buying a hardware trap" as iTunes songs can only be taken away and played on an iPod.

And the ubiquitous iPod itself can play paid-for songs with copy protection that are bought from iTunes and none of the other services, but it can play any MP3s."
