Caveat Lector: Beastie Boys Evil

“It seems that Capitol Records has some sort of new copy protection system, that automatically, silently, installs 'helpful' copy protection software on MacOS and Windows as soon as you insert the CD into default systems. I’m not sure exactly what it does yet, but I am sure regreting actually purchasing said media now… they don’t deserve my money if they choose to pull stupid stunts like this. Installing software without your permission sounds like viral malware behaviour to me. I certainly hope the AV companies put signatures into their products for this crap.” [Security Focus, via Furdlog]

Noted for when patrons complain that the CD they checked out from your library messed up their computer. Yeah, this is definitely the way for the music industry to win back already angry customers.  [The Shifted Librarian]
