Mix: DRM roadblock, Patents, Google iTunes, Gap commercial

Reuters reports on digital music’s stumbling block of incompatibility: “At the heart of the problem are dueling digital-rights-management (DRM) systems from bitter rivals Apple and Microsoft.”

Lisa DiCarlo of Forbes says that Apple and Microsoft patents relating to a digital music player “might not even be directly related.”

TheStreet.com reports: “According to market chatter, Apple is set to announce a deal with Google calling for Google to offer Apple’s iTunes music store through its own site.”

The MacTV Videocast website has posted a downloadable copy of the new Gap iTunes commercial in QuickTime format.
