Zune’s "3 Play Rule" Cracked!

When Microsoft's Zune first launched, the phrase "three days or three plays, whichever comes first" described part of the digital rights management that Microsoft imposed.  It meant that if users transferred audio content between Zune devices, they'd have either three days or three plays to listen to the song at which point the song would expire, even if it hadn't been played at all.  Wi [...]
