DVD Jon, the man supposedly behind DeCSS and advocate for circumventing DRM, has responded to Steve Jobs' open letter on DRM in three posts on his blog. In his replies, Johansen notes that some customers are more locked into the iPod based on whether they've purchased their media on CD or through the iTunes store, and Apple could (at least in theory) swiftly remove FairPlay from any track from which a content owner declines DRM. The posts are succinct, but well worth reading in their entirety at Johansen's site.
