RealNetworks ‘fully committed’ to Harmony

RealNetworks has now responded to Apple’s statement on its Harmony technology, which allows songs purchased from Real’s online music store to be played on iPods. Real says that “consumers, and not Apple, should be the ones choosing what music goes on their iPod.” The company goes on to say: “Apple has suggested that new laws such as the DMCA are relevant to this dispute. In fact, the DMCA is not designed to prevent the creation of new methods of locking content and explicitly allows the creation of interoperable software. We remain fully committed to Harmony and to giving millions of consumers who own portable music devices, including the Apple iPod, choice and compatibility.”
