About a month ago Philips had a press release stating that the copy protection on the new The Fast and the Furious soundtrack which makes the disc unplayable in most computers, did not conform to the standards they had established for the CD format they own the rights to. Philips presented it from the angle of integrity for the CD format. Almost sounds admirable, right. What they really said was; record industry, if you want copy protection, take a look at this wonderful new technology we're coowners of. Then not too long ago Sony issues a press release stating that they will not guarantee their CD and DVD players will play CD's with this new copyright protection scheme. What they really said was; Consumers, we do music AND hardware and this CD copy protection stuff is really scary. You should stay away. Call me crazy, but I think the RIAA fired back a reply to this strong arming. The recent RIAA press release talked about a 10% drop in CD sales last year and blamed it on music swapping and CDRs. What they really said; Sony and Philips, The top brass at our member companies didn't get their bonuses last year, we want copy protection and we can't afford to retool our whole process to accomidate SACD.
