Libraries loaning out iPods and cataloging iTunes

Playlist's Mathew Honan has penned an interesting article about more and more libraries turning to iTunes and iPods for a number of reasons. While this topic has been covered fairly heavily, Mathew's article takes a new angle: DRM.

You see, libraries have to serve two masters: the public that wants information, and the content providers who don't like the idea of having a CD in a library where hundreds of people can use the same CD (without having to buy a copy themselves).

Worth a look, if you are at all interested in DRM or the future of libraries.
