Greedy

Microsoft is paying Universal $1 per Zune sold, because "the Zune can play pirated content, so this helps us recoup our losses" (paraphrased). Wtf. That's just greedy.

I expect this deal to produce an extra $150 in revenues for Universal.

Will you be buying a Zune?

No. They're much nicer than my current player, the Creative Zen Portable Media Center, but I already have the Zen PMC, and I'm far from willing to spend hundreds of dollars to upgrade.

Knowing that I am paying Universal $1 if I were to buy a Zune makes me feel like I've paid a right to pirate movies.
