Itunes music library xml not updating - proof for carbon dating

In 2007, nearly four years after the Music Store launch, Steve Jobs wrote “Thoughts On Music”, in which he called upon record labels to abandon the DRM strategy:“Imagine a world where every online store sells DRM-free music encoded in open licensable formats.

Added in the 12.2 release, the Apple Music story thus far has been a series of horror stories for the music collector: tracks mismatched or replaced, tags munged and deleted, and in one case a user reporting six million copies of a Lorde song had been copied to his library.

The most chilling development, however, came with the revelation that Apple Music could replace your local library with DRM versions of songs you’d already purchased.

Whether the original source is the i Tunes Music Store, Bandcamp, Soundcloud, or just a CD you purchased and ripped to your library, Apple would now control your ability to access your own songs, including locking you out of music on some devices purchased from Apple.

Analysis and accusations are flying back and forth in headlines, comments, and support threads with no word from Apple.

I’ve been using i Tunes to manage my music library since it was first released in 2001.

I’ve always been a music collector, and now I’m a professional DJ.

I do radio shows, sporting events, parties, parades, and yes, weddings.

I’ve saved my playlist from every gig I’ve ever had.

My i Tunes Library has folders full of playlists for family, friends, and others along with mixtapes both natively digital and those I’ve reconstructed from actual cassettes.

Today I deleted my entire i Tunes library: music, playlists and all. The only real argument I’ve ever had with i Tunes is DRM.

In order to get record labels on board with the i Tunes Music Store, Apple agreed to develop and implement Fair Play, a proprietary system for controlling access to downloaded content.

i Tunes itself set restrictions on burning CDs and connecting to shared music libraries.
