Copy control

I tried that new Massive Attack album on my work computer. The case has a warning on it that the CD contains "copy control technology" designed to let you actually play it on a PC.

It works with the CD player software which comes with Windows, but not the CD player software I wrote myself. Bummer. Oh well, at least I can play it.

I'd be interested to see if the method they've used would actually stand up to someone who was determined to copy the disc.

Not that I would condone such an action. No sir.
