Copy Control

At lunchtime I perused the music stores and noticed that about 2/3 of the CDs on the New Releases shelf sported the "Copy Control" logo. I have one CD which uses Copy Control, and I usually have a devil of a job getting it to play. Needless to say, I won't be forking out my hard-earned money for another one of those coasters.

However it struck me as I was looking that if a lot of people feel the same way, and more CDs are brought out with copy protection on them, then CD sales will inevitably fall. No doubt at this point the record companies will be able to say "Ah! See! All the online music trading is hurting our business!"

What a cunning plan.
