Ripping legally purchased copy controlled audio CDs
Authored by: inajar on Feb 18, '03 11:49:07AM

That's weird, I too bought the new Massive Attack CD last week and the first thing I did was rip it to iTunes so I could listen to it on my iPod. And I didn't have any problems doing that. I can see the session seperation on my CD, but I only get the audio session when I put it into my Mac.

One of the other posters was right, your "workaround" doesn't really show the record company anything other than how to make the copy-protection better next time. The way to get the record companies to stop doing this is to return the disc as unusable, most of the large chain stores now have policies in place to accept returns of copy protected CDs without making you just exchange it for another copy of that CD. I know that's what I would have done if the new Massive Attack disc hadn't worked on my computer.

Who cares if they make you exchange it for another copy of the same CD? Open the new one, return it. And so on, and so on, and so on...
