So VirginMega just lost their suit in a French court to get the rights to use Apple's FairPlay DRM technology. They claimed that given the iPod's dominance of the digital audio market, Apple's refusal to let other people sell DRM'd downloads for the iPod constituted an anti-trust violation (which straight up seemed really silly), and that they should have access to Apple's FairPlay code.The judge didn't buy the argument and told Virgin they'd have to figure out things on their own (sort of like how RealNetworks did).
