This week’s episode of Setlist is another marking CMU’s 20th birthday, the fourteenth in a series of special editions reviewing the 20 biggest stories CMU has covered over the last two decades. This time we look at the record industry's love affair with digital rights management technology in the early years of the digital music revolution and how DRM hindered the growth of legit download stores, but ultimately made the streaming proposition more attractive.
