DRM, or Digital Rights Management limits the ability to play purchased music on any device. (For example, music from the Apple iTunes store is only playable on an Apple iPod) Gisle has often expressed skepticism towards the use DRM in his blog.[1] Wikipedia has more on the subject:

Digital rights management (DRM) is an umbrella term that refers to access control technologies used by publishers and copyright holders to limit usage of digital media or devices. It may also refer to restrictions associated with specific instances of digital works or devices. To some extent, DRM overlaps with copy protection, but DRM is usually applied to creative media (music, films, etc.) whereas copy protection typically refers to software.
