Sony BMG shipping CDs with new anti-piracy technology

Posted on Saturday, June 18 2005 @ 19:15:03 CEST by

Sony BMG has rolled out CDs with a new anti-piracy technology. One of the new things with this new technology is that people will be able to make three additional CD copies for their own use and also be able to store the audio on their computer in a digital rights management (DRM) file format from Microsoft.

One of the only problems with the new copy technology is that it doesn't offer support for the Apple iPod and various other MP3 player that aren't compatible with the Microsoft Windows Media DRM system.
The copy-protection technology is also far from ironclad. Apple Macintosh users currently face no restrictions at all. What's more, if users go to a Web site to complain about the lack of iPod compatibility, Sony BMG will send them an email with a "back door" measure on how to work around the copy protection.
More details about the new technology can be found over at Yahoo
