    No, and as far as I know, no.

    Sorry! I don't think MS has licensed ZunePass DRM to anyone yet (might be wrong about that though).

    Works on Sansa

    I dont get it - it seems that zune drm is just WMA, it works on a Sansa , and Sonos also says Zune marketplace is supported , why not Squeeze box?

    has anyone tried setting up a streaming channel from Zune Marketplace and subscribing to it on a squeezbox ?

    We do not and probably never will support WMA DRM. DRM for purchased music is on the way out.

    Zune Marketplace and Zune Pass are different and use different systems. While Sonos/Sansa may be able to play WMA DRM, it certainly can't play Zune Pass material. Zune Pass works only on Zune hardware and software.

    (in related news, emusic is doing a splendid job getting the Columbia Records catalog online. Dylan (always introduced as "Columbia Recording Artist Bob Dylan" for some reason.. yes, he was here last night) for example seems to have almost his entire catalog available.)

    Even Sony is letting lose on DRM.

    Drm

    Sony should finally get it. When their cd drm fiasco is so well documented it stands as a shining example of everything that is wrong with drm.

    Microsoft - will never get it. Ever. Neither will people who keep buying - sorry renting music with restrictive DRM schemes that can be turned off when M$ considers them no longer profitable. (See "Plays for Sure")
