A report from The Associated Press today notes that the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has fired back at Apple over its iTunes DRM missive from Apple CEO Steve Jobs, saying that the company should open up its anti-piracy technology to its rivals instead of urging major record labels to strip copying restrictions from music sold online. “Mitch Bainwol, chairman and chief executive of the Recording Industry Association of America, said the move would eliminate technology hurdles that now prevent fans from playing songs bought at Apple’s iTunes Music Store on devices other than the company’s iPod.” He states: “We have no doubt that a technology company as sophisticated and smart as Apple could work with the music community to make that happen.”
