The record industry is heading down a dark road by copy protecting all future CDs. The downward trend will continue!

This has nothing to do with piracy - it’s to do with crap music! :wink:

Take a look on N A R M homepage (National Association of Recording Merchandisers) They have some interesting points.

Forget honesty Forget creativity The dumbest buy the mostest That’s the name of the game But sales are slumping And no one will say why Could it be they put out One too many lousy records?!? - Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys) from MTV Get off the Air

Hmmm, I wonder why sales of CD’s are dropping?? Maybe because those ASS HOLES are stopping us listening to the music on the CD’s if all we have is a PC. Fucking morons, hmmm, how do we encourage CD sales, lets see, make the CD’s useless for a certain percentage of people just to make sure we loose that many more people. Sometimes I wonder if they have a brain. PLUS: paying for all this protection is draining their profits even more. I wonder which brain box thinks up all their corporate strategies.
