Schneier on Security: Musicians tell Fans How to Beat Copy Protection:
I’ve been a subscriber to Bruce Schneier’s Crypto-Gram since my CMU days, he turned it into a blog with RSS feed a while back, so I’m subscribed to it as long as I’ve been reading RSS feeds… the comments on his blog are usually very good.
Anyway, worried about not being able to rip your newly purchased CD so you can listen to it on your iPod? Use iTunes, I think in Windows, you can probably just disable auto-play, and rip it in iTunes. Or better yet, get a mac. For those with the skillz and the time, you can use your favorite *nix operating system, open source software usually don’t care about DRM. LOL…
What I’m trying to say is, this is another reason to stay away from Windoze… 😉
