Microsoft tackles anti-copy hole in their DRM system

(BBC)
Microsoft has said it is working to close a breach of its technology that protects music digital files from copyright infringement. A program called Fairuse4wm has been posted on the net and is said to be capable of bypassing Microsoft's Digital Rights Management (DRM) system. It could spell problems for internet music shops, potentially enabling users to download unlimited files.
