    I thought this quote (from a paragraph about Disney's MP3 distribution) was interesting:

    "A check of those sites shows the latest albums from Atreyu and Grace Potter & the Nocturnals on the Hollywood label available in the MP3 format, though they are not available at iTunes."

    So Jobs, even though he's Disney's biggest shareholder, doesn't seem to have a lot of clout at that company. Or perhaps there's something else going on here. The more music that's available on MP3 -- whether or not it's coming from iTunes -- the more likely it is that people will want an MP3 player. And everyone knows who makes the best MP3 players....

    Not to mention that MP3 = no DRM.
