In all the mp3 of Beyonce Knowle's "Crazy in Love" I have got, it has this. I have downloaded 5 different versions! That is why I thought it was copy protection! [/B]
Not copy protection.
What happens is users who don't like mp3 sharing, take the already ripped mp3 and insert white noise after about 30 sec.
So the size is kept the same and teh first 30 sec. are as well and people don't know and pass it around.
Keep looking as you will find a good copy, some of the newer music has been currupted.
The idea is based off of Napsters coocoo eggs, instead of white noise yo got a coocoo (stupid).
