DVD Jon launches doubleTwist — move music without DRM hassles

Jon "DVD Jon" Johansen and friends launched "doubleTwist" today — a project that removes DRM from music and allows it to be synched to a variety of devices (Jon's the guy who was prosecuted for helping to break the DRM on DVDs). Jon sez, "Although some of the news articles out today about doubleTwist focus on the fact that we help consumers convert their iTunes Store purchases to MP3, that's only a small part of what doubleTwist does. doubleTwist helps consumers sync to a variety of devices and share media with their social networks without having to think about codecs and bitrates."
