DRM-free iTunes Tagged with Name and Email

Earlier this week, Apple iTunes 7.2 brought the new ability to download tracks from EMI Records without copy protection. But as a by-product of the concessions from the friendley people in Cupertino, these DRM-free files are now tagged with the buyer’s personal information, prompting outrage from privacy activists. Remove the DRM, pacify the people, and still curb piracy.  Sounds a bit anti-climatic, eh? Well, there has to be some deterrent from endless people sharing music on P2P networks, and torrent sites.
