I’m wondering if anyone else has stumbled across these “copy controlled CDs”. If you haven’t, they’re basically CDs where they put a player on the disc so that when you put it in your computer, the program loads up and you’re forced to listen to the songs on the player provided rather than a program like windows media. The past month, I’ve bought five CDs, and two of them have the copy controlled thing on them.
I find them a bother. The player keeps having seizures if I’m trying to do something else, like browse online and switch from window to window. Also, when I want to jump for songs to songs, it takes a long time. It’s really inconvient to use my computer to play the two CDs.
What I want to ask people here is, do you think having CDs like this will curb people ripping the songs? Or do you think the smarter ones will find a way around it? Do you think they even have a point in doing this?
