Copy Protected CD’s are Worthless

What is it going to take to get the music recoding and production industry to wake up. After all how many people actually listen to an actual CD these days. My 99 disk CD player was sold at a garage sale several years ago, and the only thing I play now is music from the file server in my office piped into my stereo via WiFi.

If your pissed off about these anti-copying techniques, then you need to start speaking out. When you buy a CD that has these restrictions call the companies and tell them what you think. Until you stand up for your rights and demand fair use, the recording industry is not going to stop.

Consumers have a choice, and if we step out and say were not going to take it anymore, they will listen. But this takes a lot of people calling them out. So let’s get busy. [Techdirt]
