CD Copy Protection: Tripping The Rippers.

An excellent article on CNet, updating on the issue in depth.

Also: an interview with SunnComm, who did the copy protection on the Charley Pride CD.


  • Copy protectors to provide (copy protected) Windows Media Architecture files of songs on the CD you buy.
  • Plans to use the DMCA in the hope of making it illegal to talk too much about copy protection schemes. No, really.
  • How the copy-protected Charley Pride CD was cracked.
  • They actually think they can do this without terminally pissing off their customers. “If Hollywood had invented the toilet, it would be five times as expensive and you’d pay $1 every time you flush.”
