Hilary Rosen doesn't get it

[Ad box removed; this image serves to flag pages that need to be updated in my log file.]

Chris Brand on the Digital Copyright Canada mailing list pointed out this one:  an article by Hilary Rosen in which she complains bitterly about the DRM on Apple's iTunes service.  Ms. Rosen is the former head of the RIAA, and Apple implemented that DRM precisely because the RIAA insisted on it.  It wasn't Apple's idea or desire.  So, tomorrow will Jesse Helms be asking "How come my local tobacconist doesn't stock Cuban cigars anymore?" The mind boggles.  UPDATE: The Register says that it's a spoof.  However, their "proof" seems to consist of pointing out that the article is obviously nonsensical.  Isn't it a shame that in this day and age, that's not enough?
