Whenever I read about how bad or evil DRM is, how you can’t truly own your DRM files, how you might not be able to read them again if your format or store goes out of business, I like to remind people about the audio books on cassette tape I own.  I paid for them and I did listen to them once, years ago.  But I don’t have a cassette player anymore and I’ll never hear them again.  Therefore: Are cassette tapes bad?  Are they evil?  Does the fact that I can’t listen to them mean I don’t truly own them?

Sure, it sucks I can’t listen to them anymore, but the cassettes aren’t inherently bad, the store that sold them to me aren't evil minions of corporate greed, and I’m not entitled to download illegal digital copies as recompense.
