today I bought the new Massive Attack album, "100th Window".. and I noticed a little sticker on it, that declared it wuz "Copy Controlled".
which is nice to know.. coz I think it's REALLY working, since I actually downloaded this album 2 weeks ago ;)
(if anyone wants it.. lemme know, and I'll copy it for ya.. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHA)
then just to test the technology, I tried to rip the tracks to MP3 (y'know, just for laughs.. coz, I already HAVE IT on me hard-drive)... and noticed that, although it does manage to effectively foul up any direct audio ripping using programs like AUDIO CATALYST or SOUNDFORGE, it in no way prevented me from simply firing up an audio record program set to record "what u hear" thru my soundcard.. and then running the CD thru it.. to record everything..
it takes a bit more effort, but.. still.. in no way difficult to copy.. more of a nuisance really..
so, wot the hell do they think they can accomplish with this? ;)
