Ripping legally purchased copy controlled audio CDs
Authored by: gene_mc on Feb 18, '03 06:19:45PM

Avex Japan is pulling this same crap. The one Avex uses is the Midbar tech cactus shield. The CD does not in fact have the official compact disc logo anywhere on the disc itself or the package (The disc I have in question is Cyber Trance Presents Ayu Trance 2) I put it into my new PB 12" (10.2.4 installed) and it mounted and imported just fine. The extra track with the copy control dreck showed on my desktop but it didn't harm anything.

You can read about it here:

Copy control can never work unless the hardware and software makers are complicit. If the record companies want to try to use this copy control cd tech, I say let them if they think it will actually do anything. What worries me more is the purchasing of our legislators. (anyone remember all the DRM crap they are trying to get integrated into the ATAPI spec?) Microsoft is also gung-ho on this stuff because they want to be a distribution channel, and need a secure means to do it.
