DRM may well be dead in the eyes of music lovers, but the RIAA spokesman who reportedly made the statement has now denied he ever said it.

The internet was ablaze yesterday when the news broke that the original DRM champions had reportedly dismissed the anti-piracy method as dead and gone, but it is now being put down to a misquote.

TorrentFreak broke the story from a conversation with SCMagazine writer Deb Radcliffe, who has since asked for a retraction stating the quote was both incorrect and used without her permission.

It seems she had just in fact drawn her own conclusion from the quote from RIAA's Jonathan Lamy, which stated: "There is virtually no DRM on music anymore, at least on download services, including iTunes."

Perhaps not quite as dramatic, but some would argue its much of a muchness. What do you think? Let us know your thoughts on DRM below.
