Microsoft Announces CD Copy Protection Alternative
Microsoft Announces CD Copy Protection Alternative "Microsoft has invested heavily in DRM technologies, and the company has already seen widespread adoption of its DRM software in downloadable media content. Current audio CD copy protection schemes have been a disaster for record companies, because of incompatibilities with PCs, Macs, and even certain home and car stereos. If Microsoft's software is adopted by major recording companies, it could spur the first widespread adoption of DRM technology worldwide."
