Microsoft with WMP 11 (and backported to previous versions) introduced a form of DRM that cannot be used on any other media player and has openly threated any of the others with long days in court both in the US and EU under the DMCA and its European counterpart.

In other words, Microsoft found the goose.  Now it has to keep on laying the golden eggs.  They are trying to make it so that you have to have a Windows license to play media.  Some companies have bought into this as it makes copying their material very hard if not impossible (you cannot replay stored information on your hard drive.)
