Copy-Proof CD Is ‘Self-Destructive’

The Australian reports that the Australian Consumers’ Association is criticizing the music industry after the move to have new album ‘Escapology’ be the first copy-protected CD to make its appearance in Australia. “Trashing the consumer’s ability to do what they want with the music they buy is a really good way to alienate customers,” ACA IT policy adviser Charles Britton said. “The industry is confronting falling sales – or at least a perception of falling sales – and like a lot of misguided people they see a technological problem and solution when in fact they’ve got a management and market problem.”
