This actually makes sense. MP3 Formats are simply too ubiquitous to be controlled, tracked and force users to pay for constantly. And CDs are supposedly ‘dead’ too but also lack sufficient tracking and cost-per-usage mechanisms. I can ‘turn off’ accessing CCDB (thru checkbox options or thru a firewall) for example and Gaylord can’t tell if I’m playing MY CD or if my neighbor brought over theirs for a sock-hop.
Sharing music and entertainment should never be allowed in the future world - every entertainment experience needs to be fee-based. And disallow any format that can’t be tracked as we log in.
