The Office, Soon to Disappear from iTunes?

So apparently, NBC has decided not to renew its deal with Apple to make its shows available for download from the iTunes store. Apart from being a bad business decision for NBC, it means that those of you who have been getting your fix of The Office through iTunes will no longer be able to do beginning in 2008. So basically, NBC is punishing its customers who play by the rules, as it's clear whatever new options for legal purchase will cost more and present additional hassles, such as tighter DRM. The Office will still be available for download less-than-legally through any number of outlets online and it's hard to imagine than many would-be legitimate paying customers won't be resorting to these if for no other reason than to avoid the hassles of jumping through additional hurdles.
