New Linkin Park CD Has Copy Protection
I bought the CD for $16.99, and when I went to pop it into my Macbook Pro, the CD never showed up in iTunes…So I popped it in my work PC, and it opened Windows Media Player and allowed the CD to play, but, when I tried to view the CD’s contents in Windows Explorer…The true files are hidden..
Then I did a Google search and found out that other people had the same issues. (see mixed results from others here and here) Then I got angry. There was no disclaimer on the CD packaging …Why are they trying to restrict my ability to open the CD on my Mac and rip into iTunes?? It’s conduct like this that will cause people to stop buying CDs and download illegally instead.
From this point on, I will no longer buy Warner Bros. labeled CDs…And I will tell everybody that I know." – RockStarFamily.com
Stay tuned…we’ve asked Warner Brothers for comment.
