Well, public opinion has started to bother Apple Computer's founder, Steve Jobs.
On Apple's site there is Steve's letter, where he opposes DRM, and points the blame at the recording industries.
I really don't know if he was sincere, or it was just to improve his public image, it is a good thing. The more time that DRM issue arises, the greater are the chances that it would make enough negative public sentiment and awareness, so the politicians would have no choice, but to outlaw the DRM.
Robert Cringely had an interesting insight on this matter. A must-read.
