Boing Boing: new Coldplay CD has rules: No MP3s, no DVD players, no car stereos

Du you like CDs? here is a special one with rules: no converting to mp3, no playing in cars (!), no playing on any computer! (they do not mention Linux, so maybe you are allowed to play it on a Linux machine.. btw: since I do not own a CD player I would not be allowed to play it! so why do they say it,, when you’ve already bought it?

Boing Boing: Coldplay’s new CD has rules: No MP3s, no DVD players, no car stereos

is this legal to do “after sales” without the right to give it back to the shop? just one thing: my CDs will be without copy protection of any kind.. like the regression CD and gedankenrauschen and all compilations.. (10€ each). hey, it’s now a feature not to have anti-person-technologies!!

I don’t think they asked coldplay to do that.. as always the artist is the last one who has too much advantage of all those new ideas..

in deutsch: wieso EMI denkt, Kopierschutz sei wichtig.. manches kann man nachvollziehen, die MITTEL und WEGE sind aber wohl kaum akzeptabel..
