Bad news for Napster

I mentioned a few days ago that the big problem with Napster To Go was the digital rights management technology that prevents you from keeping the music or burning it to CD. Now BoingBoing links to a strictly theoretical exercise that suggests you can turn a 14-day Napster trial into 252 CDs of DRM-free music.

I’m not sure whether the steps suggested are legal, but it illustrates – yet again – the problem with DRM: there’s always a way around it.
