Music Label Promoting A Lack Of Copy Protection
from the serving-the-customers dept
While Sony is in the process of reconsidering their stance on copy protection for music CDs, one independent label has decided that their own lack of copy protection is a differentiator, and they’re going to use it to promote themselves. They’re now actively labeling CDs to say that the CD has no copy protection. Basically, it’s a recognition that, these days, “no copy protection” is a feature that customers want. While this may sound good, it’s really representative of the low expectations the industry has set among customers that this should even be needed. Most CDs have always been “no copy protection included,” and it’s only since major labels starting mucking around, with no useful benefit to end users, that this is suddenly necessary.

How do you let the public know which CDs are “safe” for them to buy?

!K7 Rules. I’ve always dug their releases, but with this announcement they are officially my new favorite label. Hopefully Astralwerks will come around and stand up to their EMI bosses and do likewise with their new releases.
