    Pure Mathematical Analysis :

    What I find very interesting in this idea of "kind of copyrighting the idea of writing music from pi", is that PI precisely have very important feature as a number : it's a transcendent number (not sure it's the right word, I'm not English-native). It means that you will always find more decimals to it, with no apparent repetition.
    The consequence is that PI decimals WILL contain every combination of "notes" already wrote, or to be written in human history.
    That's a wicked copyright idea!

    DRM everywhere ? srsly, guys ! (as Benjamin)

    Great, but this will undoubtedly fail :

    Each and every idea based on the fact that the initial good (here "music") cannot be reproduced freely is likely to fail, since files can be copied at no cost (almost).

    Or are you still telling us about drm-restricted files ? : This has already failed ;)

    conclusion : guys from the finance business, please don't put your hands in the music business anymore, musicians don't needs your horrible ideas ...
