Hi, @Foul: you fool :+, nice correction :B Cool ! This is the sequel. In France, laws allow to make a copy (copies ?) for your own usage as long as you have got the original. UFC (the same depicted in the news) which publishes a mag, already informed people that some protected CDs, even without stickers, may not be playable. What is more, protections could be considered against laws. So UFC asked for having clean rules: no anti-copy protection and labels have to replace non-working media with working ones ! And now: tada all wishes fulfilled (alternate ending: UFC recommanded only replacement non-working with working and labels had to provide internet access for browsing the adequate forum in order to understand how to make backup: guess which forum ) MiRV PS: what about sueing Universal executive for "DVD protection" ? I will have a look around to find what this is all about. PS2: anyway, France isn't the land of all freedoms, as some might say, 'cause the LEN law is really a shame !
