PlayFair to return ‘soon’

The PlayFair free software project is likely to come online again soon, despite efforts by Apple to close it down, according to InfoWorld. In April, Apple shut down the free software project, which lets users play music from the iTunes Music Store on hardware not authorized by Apple, such as GNU/Linux PC, provided an authorized key is available. Sarovar, a free software development community site based in Thiruvanthapuram, India, said it would stop hosting the PlayFair project after site sponsors received a legal notice from Apple’s attorneys alleging infringement of copyright. However, after Sarovar decided to stop hosting PlayFair on its site, Anand Babu, a free software proponent in Tamil Nadu, India, took over as the project’s maintainer and told InfoWorld that it will come online “soon.”
