Coldplays Protection On New Cd

From http://www.boin...new_cd_has.html


Coldplay's new CD comes with an insert that discloses all the rules enforced by the DRM they included on the disc. Of course, these rules are only visible after you've paid for the CD and brought it home, and as the disc's rules say, "Except for manufacturing problems, we do not accept product exchange, return or refund," so if you don't like the rules, that's tough.

What are the other rules? Here are some gems: "This CD can't be burnt onto a CD or hard disc, nor can it be converted to an MP3" and "This CD may not play in DVD players, car stereos, portable players, game players, all PCs and Macintosh PCs." Best of all, the insert explains that this is all "in order for you to enjoy a high quality music experience." Now, that's quality.

"A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week." - George S. Patton

Hehe, morons. Not Coldplay, whoever decided that that much copy protection was even remotely worth it.

You just know it's going to be cracked and spread all over the web in a matter of minutes now just to prove a point

Aren't the Asgard supposedly technologically superior?

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!
Well I have to say, GREAT!!! who wants to copy Coldplay anyhow?(New Year can be depressing enough without their input!). But seriously - are we taking bets for how long it will take to override these rules?

Noooooo please no, not all over the web. It's bad enough hearing them on the radio.

Trust me, I'm a doctor.
