How I went from loyal customer to dirty pirate thanks to DRM

In my freshman year of high school, I begged and pleaded and frothed at the mouth for my parents to buy me an iPod. Now, years later, having sunk over a grand into iTunes, I pretty much exclusively pirate all my music.

That's because it would cost me $300 to transfer my legitimately purchased $1000+ worth of music to my new mp3 player.

After years of being shackled by iTunes’ DRM technology, copyright policies, and well-marketed plastic portable music players…this is the story of how Apple finally drove one girl to piracy.
