Pretending DRM Works
New copy protection doesn't protect
by Karl Bode 11:29AM Sunday Aug 07 2005
Reuters explores how many customers are complaining about the DRM on the new Foo Fighters album, which is incompatible with iPods. Of course, despite the DRM, P2PNet points out the album is still being freely copied, one of the songs off it holding the number one spot among illegally traded rock music files. Despite that, the album has topped the charts - selling 736,000 units since launch, (and 23,000 digital copies).

Off topic and false.
Off topic, I know, but I had to back Karl Bode See Profile up on this one!

If what Karl Bode See Profile is saying is not true then why are most of your first posts a short one or two sentence post that is edited right after posting almost every time to make the post go along with the subject matter?
He is not the only one noticing.....

Typical neocon response...kneejerk reaction without understanding what you're seeing.

BBR is QUOTING another web site news article...they cannot be held responsible for the NEWS they report...it's like blaming Saddam for Osama Bin Laden...

oh wait, the Republican's are doing that too...

This country's in deep doo doo man..Corporate interests rule, both political parties have sold out to the money god, and the freedoms we held so dear are disappearing at an alarming rate.

Go coddle another multi-billion dollar corporation and keep yer paws off DSLR.

I am an avowed Conservative libertarian, compare me to a liberal at your own risk.

Point out where this blurb "justifies" piracy? It points out DRM attempts are failing. It also points out music sales are strong despite piracy.
