DRM: Security Mechanisms as Business Warfare!

There is an article in USA Today regarding competition between Microsoft and Apple in regards to portable music.

DRM will be used to lock an individual in a particular product system.

Two comments: First, this is only one way to use DRM. See here. Second, there may be opportunities for companies that can create a cross-platform solution.

It seems to me that this is the first time information security mechanisms have been used in a B2B environment in a competitive fashion. Anyone have any other examples?
