If circumvention is authorized into the license for that work
and all derivatives of that work, then that solves the
quarter million dollar cost to get authorization.
It becomes automatic. I still haven't heard a respons as to

In the above case, if Bob distributes teh song, teh authorization
in the license guarantees that he doesn't maintain a monopoly
for that song on the iPod.
