If they don't someone else will, perhaps illegally. I wonder how long
it will take record companies to realise that the collective work of
millions of worldwide crackers is more powerful than any anti-linux
measures that they can come up with.
All we need to do is look at the Xbox-Linux project to see that if
Microsoft had signed a linux bootloader they would have avoided
worldwide teams of researchers cracking the machine, which (as a
side-effect) resulted in the relatively easy use of "backups".
