Many CDs out there have copy protection software that installs automatically when the CD is inserted into the computer. (I’m not sure if mentioning the trivial workarounds for this is against board rules, but it probably is, so nobody mention the ways around this, no matter how ridiculously simple they are)
Does this stuff, once installed, prevent the PC from properly ripping any CD, or just that particular CD?
If so, can there be anti-sabotage laws (or something similar) that could be interpreted to prohibit this?
If it’s not illegal for them to surreptitiously install software on my PC that breaks perfectly legal functionality, it should be.
