Re: In Your Honor--Copy Protected CD Discussion
I'm planning to buy IYH as soon as my paycheck's due, and from what I learned it's not copy "protected" in Norway. Or they could have forgot to put the warning up on the music store's webpage, but they usually take great care in doing so.

Bear in mind that loads and loads of artists are completely against copy "protection" on their albums (I don't say CDs because by definition it isn't a CD when it has copy protection). And some companies have actually stopped putting copy "protection" on their releases, because they get that it doesn't work anyway.
Many artists understand the importance of people (like me for instance) downloading and listening to music to find out if they like a certain artist, and the internet can in this way actually help artists make more money since more people discover them and then
want to buy their music. There are more of these people than the "pirated music ONLY" people, I'm sure. If not, the catastrophe would indeed have hit a long time ago.
PS: sorry if some of the things I wrote here have been mentioned before, I didn't read all of the pages.
