RE: Dang! That might explain...

MQA Ltd may deny that MQA contains DRM but Utimaco disagrees. Utimaco created the encryption for MQA. You can tell from the case study they posted in May 2016 they are proud of what they accomplished. Funny the audio press never reported it. In any case encoding a file and decoding a file is DRM and MQA doesn't deny it does that.

In the MQA Ltd financial statements they state 150 companies have signed NDAs. In the 2015 statements they state 10 companies had signed licensing agreements. As of the date 2016 financial statements they had about 20 licenses. That means 130 companies are limited in what they can say about MQA that aren't licensees.

The naysayers of MQA aren't going to stop until the key opinion makers of audio stop supporting it.
