Welcome to IWETHEY!

New It will work the usual way.
Latest Media Player will install various Bits into the computer that recognize the CDs as non-copyprotectable.

Don't install it? All computers (Win2kSp3 or XP SP1 minimum) will be updated. No questions.
Any deity worthy of a graven image can cobble up a working universe complete with fake fossils in under a week - hey, if you're not omnipotent, there's no real point in being a god. But to start with a big ball of elementary particles and end up with the duckbill platypus without constant twiddling requires a degree of subtlety and the ability to Think Things Through: exactly the qualities I'm looking for when I'm shopping for a Supreme Being.
New How does that prevent all copying
When you have all those Phillips CD recorders and other hardware only copiers/recorders (not to mention Linux driven computers)?

The only way would be to make the CDs playable only on Windblows machines, and I don't think the music industry is ready to give up that many sales just to make sure the CDs can't be pirated.

He won it by making the other poor dumb bastard die for his country..."

New It won't.
That's not the idea - the idea is to get M$ more money by overselling some idea to the (computer illiterate) RIAA.

         Couldn't you still just rip the songs with a MP3 Ripper? - (orion) - (8)
             You wouldn't need the MP3 step to do that. - (static) - (7)

                     WAV=Original audio; MP3=LOSSY-compressed. So why use MP3 ?!? -NT - (CRConrad) - (4)
                         Because MP3 saves on hard drive space - (orion) - (3)
                             We were talking about burning CDs, see thread start subject. -NT - (CRConrad) - (2)
