According to The REgister:
Apple may be on the verge of announcing it will licence its FairPlay DRM technology, it has been claimed, with the recently announced Netgear EVA8000 Digital Entertainer HD one of the first non-iPod devices to take advantage of the move.
So claims website Tech.co.uk, without saying how it's come to this conclusion.
I don't know. I thought Apple's basic game was to make sure that everything only worked on their proprietary equipment? Why would the licence it? They don't make any money out of an iTunes downlaod anyway.
