Those corrupted "copy-protected" CDs apparently can be hacked with some tape and a marker. That's just beautiful. Message to the record companies: we WANT to buy your CDs. Stop releasing albums with only 2 good songs and overpricing them. Focus on developing musical acts and growing a fan base. Music piracy, artistic merit, and marketing are all related, and the sooner the record companies realise this, the happier they'll be.
