The Register has a report on a Federal filing by the Secure Digital Music Initiative (SDMI), revealing a "massive cull/defection" of members: "There are nine joiners, and 27 leavers. The volume of leavers might be telling us
something about how well SDMI is doing in its quest for the perfect secure digital
music system. The companies involved (or to be accurate, now not involved) cover
a pretty broad spectrum, and maybe they just lost hope of SDMI ever getting to yes."
