Real Reverse Engineering

Lot's of sources are reporting that Real has released a hack to allow you to play music in their own proprietary Rhapsody format on Apple's iPod, which normally doesn't recognize anything but the AAC format.

What few seem to be mentioning though, is that this seems to be a direct violation of the DMCA. Most of my readers (OK, all three of you) will probably agree that the DMCA is evil, but its interesting that a major company is going where individual developers have been crushed before.
