    Now it's on. Why the Music industry needs to burn in hell.

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,174334,00.html

    New digital rights management (search) technology shipping on music CDs by Sony Corp. of America/Bertelsmann AG artists employs stealthy, rootkit-style techniques to hide from users, according to a security expert.

    The new technology, which Sony has dubbed "sterile burning," manipulates the Windows core processing center, or "kernel," to make the DRM almost totally undetectable on Windows systems.
    un-*******-believable. well, yes it is believable, but it's amazing to see which lengths they will go to through to "protect" the music, and what they will subject LEGITIMATE CD PURCHASERS to!!!!

    the players in the music industry need to be hit with lawsuits and be made to shake in fear, as they wish to do to us.

    i haven't bought a CD in years, but it's because methods such as this that i vow to never buy another CD again.

    I buy cds to support an artist. It's just galling when you find that they :might: get 10% if they're lucky; it's more like 3% for a new group.
    One option would be to d/l it and send the group a cheque... not @ their record company address!

    This is the best part:

    It does Sony no good either because the files are rippable on a whim by anything more intelligent than a half-drunk monkey

    The thing is, is that the rest of the poeple in the world with computers don't realize whats going on and probably never will. So sony is going to get away with this...

    Although, if you went out and bought a CD with this DRM crap on it, then got infected because of a hole in software you didn't knowingly install on your machine couldn't you sue???

    I would think so, Fxckin with the kernal, that just ****es me off, ***** like this is what makes people NOT buy CDS!!!!!
    lower the prices! I would pay $5 no problem for a shiney piece of plastic with good music on it.

    same thing with software, but im not getting into that.

    Some of you have seen me express my opinion that just because record companies are greedy that doesn't mean you are entitled to steal their product.

    But THIS! Now THIS ****es ME OFF. What a load of ignorant d*ckheads.

    My only satisfaction is that this kind of activity only accelerates their eventual demise. The best part is that even if they realize it, they can't help themselves. Mark my words - DRM will accelerate, not slow down the death of the music industry.

    I'm still not advocating stealing music. The record industry is a bunch of lunkheads just like the airline industry. There's lots of stupid and/or greedy corporations out there. They usually die off after some period of time. This one is the same. Just may take awhile.
