This guy seems quite arrogant. It really gets under my skin when someone treats people as if they're stupid for believing that what he is doing is at least questionable. Which it clearly is.

People who claim that the iTMS DRM is a "good compromise" have naively bought into the impending doom propaganda.
Those two comments particularly annoy me. He's basically being an arrogant twit who thinks anyone who believe that the iTMS DRM is actually (comparably) acceptable is stupid. It actually is. There's no way DRM's going to disappear overnight, but this is by far the most reasonable DRM. So why doesn't he waste his time breaking a more restrictive DRM?

If you don't like the DRM, don't buy from iTMS. Go somewhere else. Use Bittorrent if you want a faster way to do something questionably legal.

LOL! I was about to quote this as my favourite part of the interview. But it's true, he's quite arrogant, like when he said he was confident throughout the trial. I do not dislike arrogance, though.
