Seems that the WinMx crashers (SONY) are trying to tighten their noose on your purse and traditional fair use rights http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200505/s1379891.htm
As part of its mounting United States rollout of content-enhanced and copy-protected CDs, Sony BMG is testing technology that bars consumers from making additional copies of burned CD-R discs.
Since March the company has released at least 10 commercial titles - more than 1 million discs in total, featuring technology from UK anti-piracy specialist First4Internet that allows consumers to make limited copies of protected discs, but blocks users from making copies of the copies.
At first glance this seems a reasonable trade off ... oh silly me I should have known better from these cheap petty minded theives :roll:
What their solution entails is just turning your copies into microsofts proprietory DRM format that is totally inferior to many current mp3 files formats and will once again limit you ability to use the copy in your vehicle , so top marks for stupidity Sony
I also notice Sony and Friends are refusing to say which titles are employing this idiotic system, maybe we should boycott all Sony titles to be on the safe side :twisted:
