I received an email today from Walmart because I purchased some WMA music files from them a while back. Because I have no portable player that can actually play WMA's, the first thing I did was burn those songs to .MP3 so I could rip them again and use them.The amusing thing about this email is that they just advised me to do exactly that. Apparently they don't want the headaches of dealing with providing a DRM server for the songs they sold in WMA format, so they're shutting it down. They converted to MP3 a while back, and don't want to even provide support for the old stuff.I don't see that happening at Apple with iTunes. But it says there is an overhead to this sort of thing for the publisher, and it's somewhat significant. - Gus
