    Did a search here and could not find anything about this....

    Real Networks CEO Rob Glaser says that iPod owners steal music. The majority of music on the average iPod is obtained illegally, with relatively few songs purchased from the iTunes Music Store, Glaser said in an interview with The Guardian. “If you want interoperable music today, there is a very easy solution: it’s called stealing,” Glaser said. “The average number of songs sold for the iPod is 25, and there are many more songs on iPods than 25. About half the music on iPods is music obtained illegitimately either from an illegal peer-to-peer networks or from ripping friends’ CDs, which is illegal. But it’s the only way to get non-copy protected, portable, interoperable music.”

    Him being a whining p-ssy aside, Real Player still sucks. That, of its own accord, is reason enough to avoid it.

    Please, people have been stealing music long before iPods became popular.

    If any thing is to be wrongly blamed here, it's the internet.

    Stealing music is just an advanced form of traditional stealing. I don't know why ipod users would really be any different.

    I only searched for Glaser. Since MacRumors search lists threads with recent activity first you could have just not seen it as it was a month old, but it was there. :)

    Unbelievable how easy it is for people to steal music in this new digital age!

    Excuse me, I've got a mix tape I'm dubbing downstairs.
