Cory Doctorow, ever a good watchdog when it comes to DRM issues, has brought to light that iTunes 4.7.1 reduces your ability to stream music.

If all of the music is DRMed, then there can be increased tightening on the terms until the time comes that all notion of fair use has been erased by technology.
