20k to fill 40gb

The Register: Why wireless will end 'piracy' and doom DRM and TCPA – Jim Griffin. OK, so he likes compulsory licensing, but what's that got to do with wireless? This quote is great: “It costs $20,000 to fill an iPod from iTunes Music Store. Quite simply, no one looks at a 40 GB iPod and thinks, 'it will cost me $20,000 to fill it'. It's a polite fiction. It's a looking the other way. We pretend there's monetization, but there isn't.” [Hack the Planet]
