Looks like the record companies are at it again:

CNET - Labels, Microsoft in talks on CD copying

The idea is to make PCs implement a music industry "wish list" of DRM features for "CDs".

The article gives EMI Music Chairman Munns as the source for claims that the labels initiated the most recent discussions with Microsoft, and that "the drive would not be limited to Microsoft's operating system". ("The music companies have also had early conversations with Apple.")

I think they're already dabbling in corruption. I have a CD that causes my audio CD recorder to pause about 30 seconds into track 1, everytime. Coincedence???

What's so foolish about this, is that MSFT and the music labels will spend lots of time and money coming up with a way to prevent CDs from being copied, and in about a week someone will post on the internet how to get around it.
