Since this is the famous SunnComm protection, I will get rich as I have patented the action of pressing the “shift key” whilst inserting a protected CD. Yeehaaawwww! Go Velvet Revolver Contraband - Numba one!!! :d That Lamborghini is mine!:X

“If record companies want to sell copy protected CD’s then they should be half their normal cost as they aren’t worth much if you can’t put them on your MP3 player or other media devices.” They’d probably agree with you, but their solution would be to charge twice as much for unprotected content. :slight_smile:

Terrible. It’s like me going to the car dealer, buying a car, then after it’s bought they tell me that I can only drive this car on a limited number of roads. I can assume that’s what will happen to these uninformed consumers as they try to play thier CD on a computer platform that doesn’t work, or try to back it up. Sorry Souls.

1…2…3…4…5…6… You are probebly wondering what I am counting for, well I am counting how many minutes it takes for this protection to be bypassed. 7…8…9… PS. please someone post a CD that has this protection on it, I want to goto the store, buy this CD and then spend endless hours complaining to their 1800 number how I cannot listen to the music.
