Will Copy Protection Hurt Online Music Stores?
from the collateral-damage dept
An interesting article suggesting that CDs with copy protection may end up hurting online music stores. The thinking is that many people will be annoyed with copy-protected CDs and want to return them. Returns cost online stores a lot of money, and add an annoyance factor to customers who buy online. I thought the most interesting part is that neither Amazon nor CDNow would comment on the story. I’m still hoping that there’s enough customer outrage at copy protected CDs that the labels finally realize how stupid they’re being… but that’s probably wishful thinking.
