The Music Industry Folks are Morons
In case you didn't hear, the music industry is doing all sorts of things to alienate their customers. They're finally starting to get it right with iTunes, so hopefully they'll soon realize that suing everybody and their dog (and then creating copy-protected CDs) isn't the best way to go about things.
Thankfully, independent studies are starting to show what everybody already knows: "Adding copy protection to CDs decreases demand as much as 76%, depending on the price of the disc. Music labels should leave CDs alone and migrate consumers to DVDs and digital downloads." Hopefully the folks at the RIAA will take this to heart and let us get the music how we want it.
