People will pay for convenience, not access. Online businesses are starting to wake up to this.

Michael Robertson, ex.MP3.com chief, speaks out about online music sites on the eve of launching MP3tunes which imposes no DRM restrictions on subscribers.

"I think [DRM] is a problem; I've made no bones about it," he said in an interview Wednesday. "I'm not a fan of DRM. I think it penalizes paying customers.
