“This version adds errors to the audio, which means that if the user does manage to rip the audio, the resulting tracks would contain random noise.” Adding errors to the actual Audio, does not sound to me like CDs200 Sub Channel errors + C2 Hardware errors, it sounds like they take the Audio Image file and add some errors in sectors (not really possible with RAW PCM) which means it is tiny clicks…bottom line is that it is physically impossible to add errors to the actual audio. All Audio/CDDA is on a CD (or in a CD image) are the wave/aiff files w/o the header it is simply 100% RAW PCM DATA…no sectors or anything, sure you can add errors they will result in clicks that you’ll hear when you play it. CDS so-called technology/corruption is more accurate was never copy protection, we define true copy protection as an encryption high-level algorithm, this is a bunch of nuts adding deliberate errors to an excellent technology. If you want true encryption then go to DVDA or SACD or any file system that allows it. MacroVison got their name and money from APS (AKA MacroVison) where they took advantage of Video Signals and added corruption to it (not encryption or any high-end protection) which to this day lowers video quality and causes problems with many TVs. Sadly MacroVison’s Video and now Audio corruptions are only around because people buy them…stop buying them and these people will be out of business. The saddest issue is they aren’t stopping the pirates, they are fucking good everyday consumers…Hollywood sucks and so does the RIAA to hell with both those liberal cock suckers! MacroVision are masters of errors and corruption. SunnComm are masters of stupid protection that either doesn’t work or has awful compatibity.
